Japan warned its citizens against a possible terrorist attack in six Southeast Asian countries.
The Japanese foreign ministry claimed there was information that “there are increased risks such as suicide bombings” in the six countries and advised their citizens to stay away from religious facilities and crowds.
Tanee Sangrat, spokesman for Thailand’s Foreign Ministry said there was no information where Japan’s information came from while the Philippine and Malaysian governments also expressed their confusion about the advisory.
Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesman Teuku Faizasyah said that there was no terror warning sent to Japanese citizens there.
The Japanese foreign ministry has not yet released any additional official information on the alleged terror threat.
