The US Consulate General in Lahore issued a Security Alert on Tuesday, October 1, ahead of three cricket matches scheduled to take place between the Pakistani and Sri Lankan national teams on October 5, 7, and 9. The matches are slated to be held at Gaddafi Stadium and are expected to cause major traffic disruptions in Lahore. Increased security measures and localized road closures are expected throughout the city, notably around Gaddafi Stadium, on match days.
Individuals in Lahore are advised to exercise caution and strictly avoid all large public gatherings, including sports matches, as they are at increased risk of being targeted in an attack. Monitor the situation over the coming days, anticipate heightened security measures, and follow any instructions issued by the local authorities.
