How safe is your holiday? MAPPED: Tourist hotspots with TERROR threat levels now at HIGH

A HOST of tourist destinations across Europe and North Africa are listed as being at HIGH RISK following recent atrocities and terror threats.

The Foreign Office (FCO) has kept alerts at high following the Bastille Day terror attack in Nice on Thursday and an attempted coup in Turkey overnight.British nationals were warned by the FCO that the risk of terror attacks in France remains high due to ongoing threats Islamist terrorist groups.

It comes as more than 80 people were killed when gunman Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel drove a lorry into crowds on the Promenade des Anglais on Bastille Day.

Last night the FCO also issued a warning for Turkey as the country’s military attempted to overthrow President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a coup.

Foreign Office spokeswoman said: “We are concerned by events unfolding in Ankara and Istanbul. Our Embassy is monitoring the situation closely.”Given the current uncertainty we advise British nationals to avoid public places, remain vigilant and monitor the FCO website for travel advice.”

Significant numbers of Britons are believed to be trapped in the chaos, with more than 2,500,000 UK citizens visiting the tourist hotspot each year.

UK citizens in Turkey are urged avoid public places and remain vigilant as British Airways has cancelled all flights to and from the country.

A British Airways spokeswoman said: “In light of the events unfolding in Turkey, all flights to and from the country have been cancelled today (July 16).

“We are keeping flights to Turkey under review. The safety and security of our customers and colleagues remains our top priority at all times. For the latest flight details please refer to”

France has been on high alert since the Islamic State (ISIS) terror attack on Paris which 130 dead last November and was due to be downgraded on 26 July.However, following the attack President Francois Hollande announced on Friday that France will extend their state of emergency for a further three months until 26 October.

Mr Hollande said a further 10,000 military officers will be deployed around the country, with many set to be deployed to help the situation in Nice.

The French President added: “Under these circumstances we must display caution and we must work together but we must during this busy national holiday weekend show care and attention to national security.”

ISIS claimed responsibility for that attack which also left 10 children dead.According to reports, the Turkish Government has reestablished control after the failed military coup which has left more than 260 people dead and 1,000 wounded.

The holiday hotspot continues to remain on high alert after a series of attacks in the past year.

Since January this year the country has had eight terror attacks, the latest was at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul, where more than 40 people were killed.

The FCO has warned attacks remain likely in the area and urged travellers to check local media and security updates before travelling.

It comes as nations surrounding the Mediterranean sea also face major warnings, with Morocco the latest to get the most severe rating.That decision was made in November after the African nation helped raid an ISIS terror cell.

Winter sun favourite Egypt is also among the danger zones, with many families chosing to dodge Sharm el-Sheikh after the Russian plane crash which killed all 224 people on board when it plummeted into the desert in Sinai on October 31 last year.

ISIS claimed responsibility for that attack.

Recent alerts for the region included fears Britons in the Costa del Sol could be targeted.The terror threat was put to maximim after Spain’s security forces disrupted a number of groups who were recruiting people to travel to join terrorists in Syria and Iraq last June.

Its government also believed they were plotting attacks across Europe.

Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz said the decision was made due to the “proximity of our country to the places where some of these attacks took place”.

He added: “I have adopted that decision. We are at war with barbarism against civilisation.”

Spain and France join African nations Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt on a high level, while Libya – embroiled in civil war – is sandwiched in between.
