Demonstrators are set to stage a protest march across Kabul on Tuesday, June 25, to denounce the postponement of presidential elections. Protesters are expected to gather at 06:30 (local time) at Kwaja Bughra in PD11 and march to Ghazi Stadium. The march will proceed down 40m Road and follow Airport Road to Airport Circle, Masood Circle, Abdul Haq Circle, and finally to Ghazi Stadium. Traffic congestion and disruptions are expected; militant attacks cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Kabul are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the vicinity of the protest march, anticipate transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Although travel is permissible in some areas, other areas should be considered strictly off limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
