Tourists warned away from "Star Wars" movie filming sites in Tunisia

Some countries are warning tourists to avoid visiting locations in Tunisia where the movie “Star Wars” was filmed due to jihadist activity in the border area with Libya. This site, Tataouine, is an area where people enter Libya to join ISIS. Some movie locations are about 60 miles from the border with Libya and from a base for about 4,000 ISIS fighters.

Some counties have warned travellers to avoid all travel to border areas with Libya and Tunisia due to security incidents and the high risk of terrorist attack and kidnapping.
