Saudi Embassy Warns Citizens: ‘London Too Dangerous To Travel To’
It has to be said that it comes to something when one of the world’s strictest regimes warns tourists against travelling to London because of the ‘increasing dangers of acid attacks’. The Saudi Arabian embassy has issued a warning to would be travelers that parts of London are ‘less safe’ than Saudi cities like Riyadh and that tourists are likely to be targeted in ‘acid attack robberies’.
The Saudi warning comes just days after a high-profile acid attack in Kensington, near the upscale department store Harrods, a favourite shopping destination for many Saudi tourists visiting the British capital. Breitbart London reported Tuesday after a 47-year-old man had a liquid sprayed into his face as two men on a moped attempted to steal his “expensive watch”.
A police spokesman said of the attack: “Officers from Kensington & Chelsea Borough are investigating, and at this early stage it is believed the liquid was thrown at the victim during an attempted robbery.”
While the Harrods attack targeted an for a luxury watch, many acid attacks recorded in London have been acted out against moped riders, in attempts to steal the motorcycles from underneath them. Breitbart London reported in July after five acid attacks against moped riders were recorded in 84 minutes across East and North London.
At least one victim is said to have suffered “life changing injuries”. All of the attacks are believed to have been perpetrated by the same pair of bike thieves, who have now been arrested.
Authorities have expressed concern over the rising number of acid attacks and London police have received training in how to treat the burns quickly, in the hope of preventing the worst of the possible damage.
For some time now alternative commentators have been issuing warnings that mass immigration has been making London less safe and that we are heading for the levels of violence seen in some middle eastern countries. When a regime like Saudi Arabia warns its citizens that London is now ‘unsafe’ you know that things are beginning to get seriously out of hand.
