A group of demonstrators has gathered in Shahr-e-Naw Park in Kabul's Police District 4 (PD4) as of 09:00 (local time) on Wednesday, September 23, to denounce the UK government's treatment of former military interpreters. It is currently unclear if the protest will be accompanied by a subsequent march towards the UK Embassy in PD10.
Localized disruptions are possible in the vicinity of Shahr-e Naw Park in the near term.
Those in Kabul are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, anticipate transportation disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities. Protests may act as targets for attack by militant groups.
The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
