Security Message for U.S. Citizens
Local media have reported that unidentifiable masked individuals have thrown large rocks at vehicles driving along multiple intercity auto routes in an attempt to force vehicles to stop. Occupants were then robbed at knife point. Members of this group appear to stage themselves along the road to intercept the stopped vehicles.
If you are driving and your vehicle is attacked, do not stop until you have reached a well-lit area with other people nearby, such as a gas station or municipal building. If you are on the auto route, continue to the next toll station and contact the police immediately.
