Bulgarian citizens wishing to visit Istanbul must exercise increased caution and strictly follow the orders of security officers in case of crisis situations, the foreign ministry said on Thursday in the wake of the deadly terror attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport.

Citizens travelling to Turkey should have in mind “that the threat of terrorist acts remains high,” the ministry said in a travel warning on its website.

Places with high risk of becoming targets of terror attacks are precisely the sites frequented by Bulgarian visitors - tourist landmarks, squares, shopping malls, stadiums and sports halls as well as ports, railway stations and airports, the ministry said.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov advised Bulgarian citizens leaving for Turkey to register beforehand at the website of the ministry.

The terror attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk international airport on Tuesday night claimed the lives of 44 people and injured more than 230.
