Reconsider travel to Pakistan due to terrorism, US tells citizens


The United States has asked its nationals to reconsider visiting Pakistan due to terrorism.
The State Department in the latest advisory said some areas in the South Asian country — Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, including the former Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) — have increased risk, due to terrorism and kidnapping.
Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, it said, is also known for terrorism and the potential for armed conflict. Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Pakistan. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting transportation hubs, markets, shopping malls, military installations, airports, universities, tourist locations, schools, hospitals, places of worship, and government facilities. Terrorists have targeted US diplomats and diplomatic facilities in the past, and information suggests they continue to do so.
