THE FOREIGN Office has not changed its travel advice for Turkey after last weekend's explosion in the resort of Kusadasi. The blast, believed to have been the latest in a series caused by the Kurdistan Workers' party, injured 18 people, including two English tourists.

The Foreign Office says that, with the exception of South-east Turkey, which should be visited only on essential business, it 'does not advise against travel to Turkey, but visitors should be vigilant as further attacks cannot be ruled out'.
