OTTAWA – Canada has issued a travel advisory, warning of an imminent terrorist attack in India’s capital New Delhi.

“Credible and specific reporting indicates that a terrorist attack could be carried out in the following days or weeks,” the alert, posted on the Foreign Affairs’ website, said Saturday.

It urged Canadians to exercise a high degree of caution, monitor their surroundings and minimize their presence in market areas of the city.

The alert specifically urged travellers to avoid the popular Chandni Chowk area, frequented by westerners.
