The State Department raised its travel advisory for Sri Lanka, warning potential visitors that terrorists continue plotting possible attacks there.

Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets, shopping malls, hotels, restaurants and airports, the advisory says. 

On Sunday, at least 290 people were killed in coordinated bombings of hotels and churches in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka's travel advisory level was raised to a Level 2, "exercise increased caution," from a Level 1, "exercise normal precautions." Other countries at Level 2 include France, the United Kingdom and China.
