    Good to read that foreign tourists were without armed guards. It is an obnoxious sight to see tourists accompanied by uniformed guards with weapons. If the place is so insecure tourists must be banned from coming here. Otherwise they should be set free to enjoy their visit. Tourism and visible security personnel are nemesis of each other. This is the basic principal of tourism world over.
