Washington (CNN)The US State Department has updated its travel advisories for 35 countries with a new indicator to highlight the risk of kidnapping and hostage taking.
The announcement comes days after American tourist Kimberly Sue Endicott and her tour guide were rescued by security forces after being abducted in Uganda's Queen Elizabeth National Park.
High-threat countries including Uganda will now be labeled with a "K" in order to "communicate more clearly to US citizens the risks of kidnapping and hostage taking by criminal and terrorist actors around the world," the department said Tuesday.

A dream trip for a US tourist became a nightmare abduction but ended with her rescue
Travel advisories the following countries have been updated to include the "K" indicator: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Russian Federation, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine (in Russian-controlled eastern Ukraine), Venezuela, and Yemen.

Endicott and her guide were abducted at gunpoint while on a game drive last week, according to the Ugandan Tourism Board and Ugandan police.
Four other people were taken at the same time, but they were freed while Endicott and her driver were taken from the park, officials said.

And yet we let her stay in this country when it is obvious she is killing the American dream. Kick her out.
In other words shithole countries like "little Ilhan" wants ours to be.
I honestly don't get why people would want to travel to places like that.
If I could go anywhere I wanted it wouldn't be the Congo or Pakistan or Mexico.
I'd go to Iceland where they have fuzzy ponies and elves instead of dysentery and rape.

I'm sure most of it is kidnap for ransom.

Best to stay away from those places.

Unless you have friends there and carry a gun.

I can't imagine going to any of them. I was planning to travel to north Africa for work sometime back. The job was canceled, a war broke out in the area..figures. Glad I missed it.

Yeah, I've done a lot of work in the middle east. But, there is so much volatility there right now, no one wants to build anything.

I do infrastructure.

Broadcast towers and transmitters and the facility.
