Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Demonstration

Norwegian Police have advised of a planned demonstration today at the Embassy.  The demonstration is scheduled to begin at 11:00.  The group involved is a Kurdish organization.  A prior demonstration with this group at the New Embassy Compound saw approximately 500 demonstrators and was peaceful.  It is not clear where exactly the group will gather.

As always, avoid large groups and demonstration/protest activity as these events can be unpredictable and have potential to turn violent.
