Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Pristina (Kosovo), Planned Demonstration on August 25

The U.S. Embassy Pristina informs U.S. citizens that demonstrations are expected to take place in Pristina at Zahir Pajaziti Square on August 25, 2016, beginning at 17:00. The protest may move toward and ultimately end near the government buildings. A group of citizens in Kosovo will be demonstrating against the Government of Kosovo. The anticipated size of the protest is unknown.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can become 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.
