Pakistan Alerte de sécurité

Increased security and traffic disruptions amid International cricket tournament in Karachi March 9-17

TIMEFRAME expected from 6/3/2019, 12h00 until 17/3/2019, 11h59 (Asia/Karachi). COUNTRY/REGION Karachi

Event

The 2019 Pakistan Super League cricket tournament, taking place from Saturday, March 9, through Sunday, March 17, is expected to cause major traffic disruptions in Karachi. Increased security measures, including the deployment of 13,000 police officers and localized road closures, are expected throughout the city, notably around the National Stadium, during the tournament. 

Context

Multiple international cricket teams suspended travel to Pakistan after a March 2009 attack killed seven Sri Lankan players. In May 2015, a suicide bombing left two dead during a visit from a Zimbabwean team.

Advice 

Individuals in Karachi 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.
