Tourists warned not to travel to areas around Turkey and Egypt after fallouts from General Soleimani’s death

The Foreign Office is warning tourists not to travel to areas in Turkey and Egypt amid new safety concerns.

Despite offering holidaymakers hot temperatures, sunshine and incredible scenery, there are now fresh concerns for the welfare of people who travel there.

The changes to the travel advice come after General Qadem Soleimani was killed by a US air strike, sparking mass protests in Iran.

Iran has responded with their own strikes on US bases in Iraq.

People travelling to certain areas of the countries are being advised not to do so unless absolutely essential.

Here are the warnings you need to be aware of:
