Gunfire has been reported during a protest in Kabul's Police District 16 (PD16) as of 15:15 (local time) on Wednesday, November 11. It remains unclear if shots are being fired by the Afghan National Security Forces (ANDSF) in an attempt to disperse crowds.
A heightened police presence is expected in the vicinity of the demonstration, with disruptions to transportation and business likely.
Those in Kabul are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities. The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
