A "leap second" will be added to this year's New Year's countdown to compensate for a slowdown in the Earth's rotation.

The extra second will occur as clocks strike midnight and a time of 11:59:60 PM will be recorded, delaying 2017 momentarily.

Meanwhile, Israel has issued a warning of imminent "terrorist attacks" on tourists in India, advising its citizens to avoid public places during the New Year celebrations.

A statement from the Counter-Terrorism Bureau urged particular caution in the south-west of India, saying travellers should shun crowded areas like beach parties, clubs, and markets. India is a popular tourist destination for Israelis.
