The Department of State continues to strongly warn that travel in all areas of Afghanistan is unsafe due to military operations, landmines, assassinations, kidnappings, carjackings, banditry, armed rivalry among political and tribal groups, and the possibility of terrorist attacks, including attacks using vehicular or other improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The number of attacks due to drug-related activity continues to be high in the south.

No part of Afghanistan should be considered immune from violence, and the potential exists throughout the country for hostile acts, either targeted or random, against American and other Western nationals at any time.
