Travel plug


I notice that your map on the reconstruction of Iraq includes Zambia among the destinations which the (UK) Foreign Offi ce advises against 'all travel to parts of these countries' (NCE 30 September). I disagree with this assessment.

If you meant the Democratic Republic of Congo then I would understand. I believe that Zambia is one of most stable countries on the African continent and civil engineers have no cause to fear that they will be targeted if they come to work here.
