Canada, Australia and Britain have joined the U.S. in warning their citizens of a possible security threat in the Philippines.
According to the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), the U.S. Embassy in Manila said on Friday that “a threat against American citizens in metropolitan Manila, specifically the Pasay City neighbourhood, had been detected by reliable security forces.’
The U.S. Embassy said the threat was in effect until Oct. 10.
The DFAIT says Canadians should be extremely vigilant when travelling in Manila and other parts of the Philippines.
