Peshawar - Post Report Question and Answers

Are there personal security concerns to be aware of at this post? Please describe.

Security is a critical priority. The host nation needs additional help in extending government control and the rule of law in ungoverned spaces throughout Pakistan. We are here to help. - Nov 2013

YES!!!!! Security concerns are all-consuming here. It is a home-to-work, work-to-home kind of post with very few amenities or opportunities to see the country. Don't expect to picnic at the Khyber Pass or spend a weekend in Chitral. It's not happening. - Aug 2010

Security in Pakistan is continually declining. In the past year there have been several incidents of foreigners being kinapped or killed. Like all other cities in Pakistan there are bombings in public places throughout the year. - Feb 2009
