British holidaymakers visiting the northern Indian city of Lucknow have been told they will not be welcome sparking a fresh Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) warning. A leading Shia cleric and his followers have issued statements, relating to the war in Iraq, telling Great Britain, the U.S. and Israeli visitors to stay away from the city. Signs have also appeared at Shia Muslim holy sites baning visitors. Although there does not appear to be a direct threat of violence, the FCO has advised travellers to consider cancelling trips.
