Terrorists may be seeking to carry out a terrorist attack in Tajikistan, including against US targets in the country, US State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security said in a security message for US citizens on Friday. 

The message, in particular, notes that although there have been no recent attacks by organized terrorist groups in Tajikistan, the threat remains, and the danger of such an attack may have increased over the past 6-12 months.

A range of terrorist organizations reportedly might seek to conduct attacks in the territory of Tajikistan, including against U.S. interests and the U.S. Embassy.

With this in mind, the Embassy would recommend that U.S. citizens: exercise caution around the Afghan border and remain in populated areas after nightfall; avoid large public gatherings and public transportation when possible; and be aware of their surroundings and remain alert for unusual activity.
