Before the next general election, which will happen before or in January 2024, the US embassy in Dhaka told all US people living in the country to be careful.

Sunday, the embassy sent out a news release called “Demonstration Alert” with an important message.

In the release, the embassy asked US citizens to be careful because peaceful protests can turn violent if they turn confrontational.

So, they are asked to stay away from protests and be careful around big gatherings. They are also asked to review their personal security plans, stay aware of their surroundings, including local events, and listen to local news stations for updates.

It also said that political rallies and other events connected to the election had already started. As the general election gets closer, political gatherings and protests may happen more often or with more force.
