Context

The government of Pakistan believes that by curbing free movement of “dubious diplomats like Raymond Davis”, Americans in particular, terror incidents have reduced considerably in the country. This, according to Pakistani officials, suggests the involvement of US intelligence officials in actions that sparked unrest across Pakistan. In the wake of the Raymond Davis incident whereby two Pakistani citizens were killed in January 2011 in Lahore, the Pakistani government tightened the visa policy for American nationals and enforced the condition of No-Objection Certificates (NOCs) on the movement of foreigners within the country, particularly to Khyber Pukhtunkhawa and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).
