Travel to Lebanon ill-advised, says ministry

Foreign ministry officials are looking for a way to evacuate Lebanon after Israeli airstrikes

Israeli fighter planes attacked several targets in Lebanon on Thursday, leading the Danish foreign ministry to advise all Danes to cancel trips to the country.

The ministry also encouraged Danes already in Lebanon to be extra cautious after Israeli warplanes bombed targets in Beirut. They should stay where they are and seek shelter indoors.

'The embassy office in Beirut has been contacted by some 80 Danes staying in the area. Some of them want to leave the country as soon as possible whilst others wish to stay,' Danish foreign ministry's office head Uffe Wolffhechel told public broadcaster DR.

It is not possible to leave the country by air, however, after airport authorities closed Beirut's airport, as a response to the Israeli rocket attack Thursday morning.

The foreign ministry is seeking other ways to transport Danes out of the country, most likely be by ship.
