Taipei, May 2 (CNA) Taiwan has advised its nationals travelling to the Philippines to watch out for their safety after reports that a terrorist group in the southern Philippines could be eyeing Palawan in the western Philippines as a target.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a gray alert for the Philippines Tuesday, reminding travelers to pay attention to their safety.

Under the ministry’s four-color travel advisory system, the lowest level is gray, followed by yellow, then orange and finally red.

The ministry said Abu Sayyaf, a terrorist group traditionally active in the southwest of the country, could be planning to target Palawan and Coron in the west.
