(ISLAMABAD) — The U.S. Embassy in Islamabad issued a rare warning on Thursday, restricting its employees from going to restaurants and markets in Islamabad for over a week.
The warning is based on security concerns and will be in effect from April 27 to May 5. Americans in the Pakistani capital are also advised to take similar precautions during that time period.
The United States already has an ongoing travel warning for the entire country, advising U.S. citizens to avoid all nonessential travel to Pakistan.
