AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL WARNS AGAINST TRAVELLING TO THE USA
Travellers to the United States should “exercise extreme caution... due to rampant gun violence”, a prominent human rights organisation has warned.
There have been more than 250 incidents of gun violence in the US so far this year in which at least four people were shot (excluding the shooter).
The deadliest happened within hours of each other earlier this week, with 22 killed in El Paso, Texas and 10 in Dayton, Ohio.
Now Amnesty International has issued a travel warning to the US, saying it’s suffering a “human rights crisis”.
“Travellers to the United States should remain cautious that the country does not adequately protect people’s right to be safe, regardless of who they might be,” said Amnesty’s US gun violence campaign manager Ernest Coverson.
