United States has asked its citizens to postpone all their non-essential travel to Pakistan in wake of the increased and continued terror threat in the country.

In a travel advisory issued yesterday, the second in less than 45 days, the State Department referred to a recent advisory of the Federal Aviation Administration, which cautioned pilots of commercial airlines about the risks to civil aviation operating in Pakistan, particularly at low altitude, during the arrival and departure phases of flight, and when on the ground, due to extremist or militant activity.

The State Department said, Pakistan continues to experience significant terrorist violence, including sectarian attacks, adding that targeted attacks against government officials, humanitarian and non-governmental organization (NGO) employees, tribal elders, and law enforcement personnel are common.
