American officials are increasingly worried in regards to the recent clashes in violence which have been occurring in Colombia since the Peace deals failed.
In the bomb attack outside the presidential palace five American tourists have been confirmed dead, with twenty Americans injured, although identification is still taking place, so this figure could rise.
American officials are publishing new travel rules and are believed to be about to urge American citizens to cease travel to Colombia, in response it is believed that travel insurance will rise due to the safety concerns. As well as this it is believed that other countries will follow suit, in trying to prevent travel to Colombia.
If tourism falls this could have severe implications on small businesses and seriously affect the economy.
