Hundreds of residents have gathered in the Mehmoodabad area of Karachi on Thursday, November 19, to denounce a government operation taking place on Thursday to demolish hundreds of homes built near a stormwater drain in the area. Transportation disruptions have been reported as a result of the protest and the operation.
A heightened security presence and localized disruptions to transport are likely in the vicinity of the demonstrations.
Those in the area are advised to monitor the situation, avoid any protests and spontaneous gatherings due to the risk of incidental violence and crowd-related disturbances, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
