Now US advises citizens not to travel to Pakistan

If one goes through the travel advisory issued by the United States for its citizens, India has nothing much to cheer.

According to the report, the department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs categorised Level One as "exercise normal precaution" on USA travellers, Level Two is "exercise increase caution", Level Three is "reconsider travel", and Level Four is "do not travel".

"The new travel advisories will continue to provide what we used to call the country-specific information about things like entry requirements, special circumstances, health issues perhaps, road safety issues and things like that". "Do not travel to Balochistan province, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) province, and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) due to terrorism", states the website.

The U.S. also issued "exercise increased caution" advisory for its citizens travelling to India.

The advisory asks Americans not to travel to Jammu and Kashmir, except for eastern Ladakh and Leh and also advises citizens not to venture within 10 miles of the India-Pakistan border due to the "potential for armed conflict".

In September, the agency stated in a travel warning that, "numerous U.S. Embassy Havana employees have been targeted in specific attacks", suffering "significant injuries as a outcome of these attacks".

Travel by USA government personnel within Pakistan is restricted and additional restrictions on movements by the United States government personnel outside of American diplomatic facilities may be put in place at any time depending on local circumstances and security conditions, which can change suddenly.

That was a message echoed by Bernier-Toth on Wednesday.

Magnitude Quake Strikes Western Iran
The USGS says the preliminary magnitude of six of the temblors was at least 5, while the seventh was a magnitude 4. A series of moderate earthquakes shook Iran on Thursday but there were no immediate reports of victims or damage.

"But essentially how we assess the threat level in a country hasn't changed".

The department said last month an overhaul was coming to improve how the agency communicates its global advisories.

Cuba, for instance, where the State Department has previously advised against travel, was listed as a Tier 3, rather than Tier 4, country. It urges travelers to stay away from the states of Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa and Tamaulipas (all level 4).

Meanwhile, Russia and Turkey are at Level 3.

The No. 4 countries with do-not-travel warnings include Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Mali, North Korea, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen.

On Tuesday, US senators heard State Department officials say someone known to the Cuban government has a mystery weapon that they use to cause brain trauma to Americans in Havana.

The travel advisory has been broken down into four levels.
