On Sunday, September 15, security forces in Karachi used tear gas and water cannons to disperse a teachers' protest, reportedly injuring several people.
Hundreds of teachers gathered at the Karachi Press Club in the morning (local time) to demand regularisation of their services. At around 15:00, protesters headed to the Chief Minister's House, prompting police to disperse the crowd as the area was reportedly off the authorized protest perimeter.
Similar demonstrations are possible over the coming days. A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be expected near all gatherings.
Individuals in Pakistan are advised to monitor developments to the situation and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
Some Western governments advise their citizens against travel to parts of Kashmir, notably including areas along the Line of Control (LoC), due to the significant risk of violence.
