The US State Department warns that terrorists and their sympathizers regularly attack civilian, government and foreign targets throughout Pakistan, particularly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Threat reporting indicates terrorist groups seek opportunities to attack locations where Westerners congregate or visit. Terrorists have disguised themselves as Pakistani security personnel to gain access to targeted areas.

Reports of religious intolerance rose in 2010-2011. Members of minority communities were victims of targeted killings. Accusations of blasphemy (a crime that carries the death penalty in Pakistan) against Muslims as well as non-Muslims also increased.

Demonstrations occur regularly, often taking on an anti-Western character. Avoid large gatherings.
