Great Britain have expressed safety fears ahead of their Davis Cup trip to Morocco following the recent bombings in Casablanca.
More than 40 people were killed in the incidents, prompting the British Foreign Office to warn people to "avoid public gatherings and demonstrations".

Britain are due to play a world group qualifying match in Casablanca in September.

"We would like to express our deep sympathy to the people of Morocco following the terrorist attack in Casablanca last Friday," said a Lawn Tennis Associatio statement.

"We can understand that this is a difficult time for all Moroccans and we can sympathise with our colleagues at the Tennis Federation in Rabat.

"As far as our scheduled Davis Cup tie in Casablanca is concerned, we have contacted the International Tennis Federation to seek clarification on the matter following Foreign Office travel advice given over the weekend.

"The safety of all fans, players and officials attending the tie must be paramount and we will be in regular consultation with the ITF and the Moroccan Tennis Federation."

The ITF switched the Fed Cup play-offs from Turkey to Portugal recently because of the Iraq conflict.
