US Embassy issues warning about “increased volatility and risk in Chad’s border areas”

The United States Embassy to Chad has recently released a warning to US citizens, discouraging any kind of travel through Chad’s border areas.

The warning is not very specific and only speaks of “increased volatility and risk”.

“The U.S. Embassy in N’Djamena informs U.S. citizens that there is increased volatility and risk in Chad’s border areas.  U.S. citizens should reconsider travel through the border areas of Chad.  The increased volatility and associated risk may affect all manner of transportation in these areas.”

While the warning encourages US citizens to “Monitor local media for updates” it seems there are currently no new events indicating “increased volatility” in the border regions of Chad. However, known threats exist near the border areas, including terrorist activity around lake Chad and the danger of rebel incursions at the Libyan border.

Although this warning did not describe the dangers to beware of, it did mention that “The increased volatility and associated risk may affect all manner of transportation in these areas.”

The U.S. Government discourages all travel to these areas.
