This is nothing, what is missing from this photo are the "route protection force" and "Venue Protection Force". The route protection force consists of a team from Special Branch that carry out a physical and technical sweep of the route via cable detectors and other equipment to locate any hidden IEDs or similar hazards, the RPF has a number of plain clothed police officers from special branch allocated to "Surveillance detection duties" and their job is to identify anyone who may be engaged in hostile recon.
These kind of threat assessments come daily in Pakistan.
Yes that is part of the QRF, if they still don't feel safe, well dhur fitteh muh to them!@RescueRanger
Even gunships patrolling in the air and scouring the area.
What's more it's safe for all the Western civilians to be evacuated from Afghanistan and given refuge in Pakistan but a dozen or so cricketers feel vulnerable.
