Nassau (CMC):The Bahamas government is warning nationals visiting the United States to exercise caution and care in light of criminal acts being committed against Bahamians, especially in South Florida.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a brief statement gave no details of the acts against Bahamians but advised them that they should always seek to "travel around in groups and avoid remote and dimly lit areas". They also urged against leaving valuables in vehicles since the "break-ins have been of valuables left in the trunks of cars".

" Additionally, travellers are advised to leave all travel documents including airline tickets, police certificates and passports in a secured place such as a safety deposit box at the hotel."
