ALERT: U.S. says defer travel to Pakistan, India

U.S. says defer travel to Pakistan, India

WASHINGTON, May 25 (UPI) -- The United States State Department late Friday warned Americans to defer travel to Pakistan and India, particularly all areas that border disputed Kashmir.

Besides the mounting tensions and artillery fire along the border areas between the two countries the department said terrorists are operating in the region who previously have attacked Americans.

"Tensions between India and Pakistan have risen to serious levels, and the risk of intensified military hostilities cannot be ruled out," the warning said.

Terrorist groups, some of which are linked to al Qaida, "are active there as well and have attacked and killed civilians," some of them Americans.
US embassy and consulates remain available in India and Pakistan for now, however.
