The region of Guinea bordering Sierra Leone and Liberia has experienced renewed cross-border incursions and kidnappings by armed factions. As a result of rising tension in the region, U.S. Government and U.S. Government-affiliated personnel located within 63 miles (100 kilometers) of Guinea's border with Sierra Leone and Liberia have been recalled to Conakry.
The Department of State urges U.S. citizens residing in or visiting Guinea to leave the area between the Conakry-Mamou-Faranah-Macenta Road and the border until the situation returns to normal.
