There has been a recent increase in bombings and in civilian casualties. The US Department of State has heightened security for U.S. citizens in Kabul. About a week ago, a string of suicide bombings killed at least 65 people around Kabul.

Advice For Travellers

Most countries advise against all travel to Afghanistan due to the high risk of terrorist attack and lack of personal security and safety. If you are in or plan to travel to Afghanistan, be vigilant and aware of your surroundings. Avoid places frequented by Westerners, hotels and restaurants that serve alcohol and cater to Westerners, military or police installations, and crowded shopping areas.
