ISLAMABAD: The American Embassy says it has received information on possible terrorist attacks in Islamabad in late December, especially during the Christmas and New Year holiday period.
The warning for American citizens says “possible targets include places of worship and shopping centres”.
A Pakistani intelligence official said on condition of anonymity that there was a “general threat perception” but no specific threats.
The US warning says American citizens should “minimise the number and duration of trips” to crowded places such as markets, restaurants, hotels and places of worship. American government personnel are under additional movement restrictions.
