U.S. Embassy Issues Travel Warning for the Bahamas
The U.S. Embassy in the Bahamas is warning about the threat of armed robbery in the capital of the island chain off Florida’s east coast.
A statement from the U.S. Embassy in Nassau advises Americans living in and traveling to the islands to be on heightened alert to avoid being a crime victim. It says “armed robbery remains a major threat” facing Americans in Nassau.
The security message was issued Friday, about a week after an Illinois man was fatally shot on a Nassau street during a robbery.
