Security Message for U.S. Citizens: March 22, 2016

The U.S. Embassy informs U.S. citizens that the shelter in place recommendation is lifted. Be advised that Malian security forces may continue to block certain streets/roundabouts and set up random checkpoints throughout Bamako as investigations continue. The Embassy urges U.S. citizens to continue to exercise caution, remain vigilant, maintain situational awareness, and vary routes and times. Additionally, all U.S. citizens in Mali should enroll in STEP and include a Malian cell phone number to receive security messages.
