well as the motorway that connect this lombard to the provincial capital of the punjab all people are stuck on the highways take an org move because all the able to take training have been taken over by the protector and then we have also been told that the protesters are now back in strength at the same place where the security forces primarily the police where they tried to get large them earlier this morning story indeed a crisis situation head and the military now being called in for the protection of islamabad but this is a situation that has been mishandled by the government that disqualified prime minister of the country had called all his party workers and members including senior ministers for the meeting and it all was probably it was brewing in the city of karachi in islamabad so it appears that the government had miscalculated they did not know their strength of the reaction that would happen and on forward on the streets across pakistan indeed
a crisis situation one that threatening to spiral out of control that is also talk that the form a interior minister's house was that the law minister who's resignation that people have demanded and also being attacked and of god that the government and all sorts of trouble. washington says it strongly condemns the release of saeed a suspect behind the two thousand and eight mumbai attacks and says the decision will affect u.s. pakistan relations saeed the founder of the armed group jemaah dawa has a ten million dollar u.s. bounty on his head for the attack which killed one hundred sixty six people including americans officials say he's being released because the government has failed to provide any evidence against him saeed has repeatedly denied involvement in the mumbai attacks when the said let's go to tom ackerman who's in washington so why is the united states so concerned about this case well this is in line with president trump's pronounced leaning against the pakistani government accusing
them of failing or in fact allowing pakistani soil to be host for the hakani network and taliban in the fight as just as he launches what he describes as a. pronounced a new strategy for winning over winning in afghanistan a winning strategy that the president hasn't quite spelled out but certainly regards pakistan as not a cooperative partner in that venture the pakistani interior minister just a couple of days ago said that he was pledging that that the government was committed to not allowing its soil to be used for violence against any other country and that is something that the american administration simply does not believe and as a result the it is in keeping with that position the drug administration has
been making there references in their overtures to india asking the indians to be more engaged in the afghan fight even more irritating for the pakistanis what kind of repercussions today will be for pakistan and its relations with the u.s. over this. well since august the administration has put on hold what they call an escrow account two hundred fifty five million dollars of the military aid that pakistan has been getting last year they got an estimated one and a half billion dollars in military aid from the united states next week the u.s. chairman of the joint chiefs of staff general dunford is was due to be in islamabad to have talks with the with the pakistani authorities on the future of the relationship to be followed by the defense secretary james mattis so we'll see whether there is what kind of follow through there will be in the meantime the
pakistanis have been. have have their position is clear as well of the pakistan national assembly a few months ago attacked trump as calling his position threatening and. using the word hostile so whether this is actually an escalation in the relations or the tense the tense tension in the relations between the two countries we'll just have to see in the in the forthcoming few weeks come back and thank you very much indeed for. prosecutors in egypt say a gunman who stormed a mosque in sinai carrying an eye so flat officially there is still no claim of responsibility but egypt's military has already become bombing targets part of a pledge by president sisi that those behind the attack would not go unpunished
