UN Senate cuts Aid to Pakistan

TNI Bureau: The United States Senate has taken strong exception to Pakistan’s move to punish a Pakistani doctor, who helped the CIA to locate Osama Bin Laden and voted unanimously to cut aid to that country.

The aid to Pakistan will be reduced by $33 million. Interestingly, the doctor Shakil Afridi was sent to 33 years in jail on high treason charges. The US Senate decided to take away $1 million for every year of the doctor’s sentence.

The US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has already reacted strongly to Shakil’s sentencing and termed it as “unjust” and “unwarranted”.
