A popular hotel in Lao PDR, Vietnam, was closed to visitors on Wednesday after a bomb blast destroyed the building.
The Red Lion hotel in the capital of Ho Chi Minh City, which has a history of terrorism, was set ablaze on April 30, 2015, and remains under police guard.
The hotel, which opened in 1978, was known for its luxurious accommodations and its famous red lion theme.
The explosion at the Red Lion, which was not linked to terrorism, killed six people and injured more than 70 others.
The local government is trying to reopen the Red Lions with an improved security situation.
“The Red Lion is the best of hotels in Laotian capital,” a tourist posted on Twitter.
The official Twitter account for the government in Laothi province, which is the capital, has since posted a statement to warn people of the Red lions potential threat.
“We urge the citizens of Laothim to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities to us if you feel suspicious about them,” the statement said.
“If you have any information regarding any suspicious activity, please contact us via email.”
