The American Embassy located inside the highly fortified Diplomatic Enclave has sought permission from the capital’s civic agency to retain six security barriers installed around its newly-built complex, according to local media sources. “These drop arm security barriers are installed in the right of way of surrounding streets or roads [for security purposes] in Diplomatic Enclave,” says a recent correspondence between the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs over the issue. The embassy’s administration had made the request through the ministry, sources further added.
