More than 100,000 American tourists are staying at one of India’s most iconic tourist attractions in the country, Taj Maha, in the wake of a deadly attack on the Taj in December.
More than 400 people were killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up inside the venue.
The attack sparked protests in the Taj capital, and a government ban on the use of public spaces, including the main Taj Mahas tourist site.
The attacks led to widespread protests against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, which is headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is running for re-election in November.
In a statement, the United States Embassy in India said its travel advisory to American citizens was being reviewed, adding that it was not possible to comment further.
“While we understand that the circumstances surrounding the attack at the iconic Taj Mahallauk are extremely difficult for many Americans, we are working closely with the Indian government to assist them,” the embassy said in a statement.
Indian authorities say they are not looking for any links between the attack and the attack on Taj Mahals, and said they are trying to help Americans find safe and comfortable accommodation.
More than 100 American citizens were killed and more than 300 injured in the suicide attack at Taj Mahalls Taj Mahalo Hotel in the Indian capital of New Delhi on Dec. 3, 2017.
(Reuters)In recent months, Taj tours have been a mainstay of Indian tourism.
Indian officials say they will not tolerate any type of violence and have launched a major crackdown on the tourist industry in the face of a spike in violence in recent years.
The attacks on the hotels, which have been popular among Indians and Americans alike, led to an outpouring of grief and anger from Americans and many other visitors.
Indian police have been trying to find people who were in the hotel and are now in custody.
