Belarusian taken as hostage in one of hot countries

28 July 2017

The Belarusian Foreign Ministry encourages tourists to be more attentive to the recommendations of diplomats about behavior in extreme situations. On July 23, a citizen of our country was taken hostage in one of the hot countries.

He was captured by the armed parents of a local girl, whom our compatriot refused to marry. The story, however, ended well. At least, for the "groom". He managed to secretly send SMS with his exact address, the number of the armed people and their location in the building to the employees of our diplomatic mission. The local police conducted a special operation to release the prisoner. Recommendations for tourists and hotline numbers of the Belarusian diplomatic missions can be found on websites of the embassies or their pages in social networks.
