Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Procession & Prayer Service Planned for March 5

Tomorrow, Saturday, March 5, at approximately 7 a.m., a procession is scheduled from an unannounced starting point that will end at Stade des Martyrs for a prayer service, scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. The procession and prayer service are planned by civil society groups in support of National Dialogue. Large crowds may develop in that area.

The U.S. Embassy reminds U.S. citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. You should, therefore, avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations. Maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.
