Pakistan: US flag and Trump effigy burned at protest over terror claims

People of the Bugti tribe held a rally against US President Donald Trump's recent tweets concerning Pakistan, in Dera Bugti on Sunday. The rally started at Pakistan House before heading to Allah Wali Choak where protesters burnt a Trump effigy and a US flag. They also chanted slogans against America, Israel and India. «We condemn cowardly threats to Pakistan by America, Shame on America and... Еще Trump,» read a banner carried by protesters. The US has suspended security assistance to Pakistan after Washington accused the country of harbouring terrorists and failing to adequately confront terror groups on its territory. The decision to halt security aid followed tweets from Trump in which he claimed that: 'The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years' and added that the country has given in return 'nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools.' He also added that Pakistan provides a 'safe haven to the terrorists.'
