Turkey-bound HK travellers should watch local situation

     In view of the latest situation in Turkey, a government spokesman today (August 3) advised Hong Kong residents who planned to visit Turkey to pay close attention to the situation there. Those who are already there should attend to their personal safety and endeavour to avoid places where there are large gatherings of people.
