Travel Warning: PAKISTAN

In light of the June 14, 2002 car bombing in Karachi and the ongoing concern for further terrorist actions against American citizens, the Department of State again reiterates its warning to American citizens to defer travel to Pakistan and strongly urges American citizens in the country to depart. Tensions between India and Pakistan remain at serious levels, and the risk of intensified military hostilities cannot be ruled out. Virtually all land and air links with India are closed. Military movements continue along both the Line of Control in Kashmir and the border between India and Pakistan. Artillery firing along the Line of Control has caused death and injury in that area.
