Saudi embassy advises its nationals to leave Sri Lanka


Saudi Arabia advised its nationals to leave Sri Lanka, Al Ekhbariya state TV said on Tuesday (April 30), citing the kingdom’s embassy in Colombo.

“Due to the current security situation in the Republic of Sri Lanka, the embassy advises citizens in Sri Lanka to leave,” the embassy said in a tweet.

The advice follows suicide bomb attacks on hotels and churches that killed more than 250 people, including 42 foreign nationals, on April 21.
