Pakistan Alerte de sécurité

Bus crash leaves at least 13 dead and more than 30 injured near Hassan Abdal (Punjab province) on July 11; disruptions on motorways possible over coming hours

TIMEFRAME expected from 11/7/2019, 12h00 until 12/7/2019, 11h59 (Asia/Karachi). COUNTRY/REGION Hassan Abdal (Punjab province)

Event

At least 13 people were killed and more than 30 others were injured in a bus crash on Thursday morning (local time), July 11, near the town of Hassan Abdal (Punjab province). The bus reportedly slid off the road and overturned in a gorge. Police believe the driver had been speeding and was using his mobile phone at the time of the accident.

Residual disruptions are possible on the Peshawar-Islamabad motorway over the coming hours.

Context

Bus and vehicular accidents are frequently reported in Pakistan. Many of the country's roadways are poorly maintained and have fallen into disrepair, and drivers are often negligent and typically do not adhere to traffic laws, making driving and using public transportation in the country extremely hazardous.

Advice

Individuals in the Hassan Abdal area are advised to prepare for residual transportation disruptions and to adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.

As a reminder, Western governments advise their citizens against all nonessential travel to Pakistan, due to a high threat from terrorism, kidnapping, and sectarian violence throughout the country. Individuals who must travel in Pakistan are advised to avoid all forms of public transportation, such as trains, taxis, and buses.
