Embassy Early Closure October 27, 2015

This is to inform U.S. citizens that the Embassy will be closing at 2:00 p.m. on October 27 due to road closures connected to demonstrations throughout the city and limited public transportation.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
