Default Updated travel advice for Sabah

Today I received a text message from the Australian embassy who have updated their travel advice for Sabah. Upgraded to 'Reconsider your need to travel.'

'This Advice was last issued on Thursday, 22 December 2011. This advice has been reviewed and reissued. It contains new information in the Summary and under Safety and Security: Terrorism (plans for kidnap for ransom operations in western Sabah). We now advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in coastal resorts in western Sabah due to the threat of kidnapping.'

I know that there have been travel warnings for Eastern Sabah, including the islands because of terrorism and kidnapping threats for a long time, however, I think the advice on Western Sabah (which includes Kota Kinabalu) is new? Such a shame, its a beautiful part of the world..
