Pakistan orders expulsion of "Save the Children" staff

Pakistan has ordered all Save the Children's foreign staff to leave the country within four weeks, a spokesman for the aid agency said Thursday.

The charity, which has six expatriate workers in Pakistan, said it had received no explanation for the order, but it has reportedly come under suspicion over the US raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011.

Media reports have linked Save the Children to Shakeel Afridi, a Pakistani doctor who was jailed for 33 years for treason after helping the CIA hunt down the Al Qaeda chief using a fake vaccination programme.

"Earlier this week we got a call from special branch instructing us to send back all expatriate staff," Save the Children spokesman Ghulam Qadir told AFP.

"There were no reasons given. We are working with the government to comply with the instructions.

"We will continue to operate in Pakistan and Save the Children is currently serving more than seven million children with 2,000 dedicated national staff.

"Our commitment is that we will continue to carry out our programme activities to meet the needs and rights of the children."

Save the Children denied allegations that it was used as cover during the hunt for bin Laden.

"On Shakeel Afridi, our stand is very clear that there is absolutely no truth in it. There is no concrete proof to these allegations", Qadir said.

He said initially the government had asked the foreign staff to leave within two weeks but the time was extended after a request.

No government official was immediately available to comment.

Pakistan says 700,000 hit by floods

Flash floods triggered by record rains in southwestern Pakistan have affected around 700,000 people and destroyed hundreds of thousands of acres of crops, officials said today.

At least 51 people have died across the impoverished province of Baluchistan and Prime Minister Raja Parvez Ashraf declared three districts as calamity-hit areas, FP reports.

He announced assistance worth US$27.5 million for relief and rehabilitation work in the province where a torrential monsoon spell this month smashed a 30-year record, they said.

Heavy rains lashed the province for 32 hours on September 11 and the meteorological department recorded 432 millimetres of rain, head of the provincial disaster management authority Akbar Durrani said.

Officials released the figures almost two weeks after the rains hit the sparsely populated province, which is struggling with a separatist insurgency and Islamist militants.

Flash floods damaged crops over 380,000 acres of land in 13 districts, he said adding that the worst hit were Jaffarabad, Naseerabad and Jhal Magsi, where a large area remains submerged.

At least 22 people have died in Naseerabad alone and eight in Jafffarabad, Durrani said. The remaining casualties were reported elsewhere in the province.

Another 115 people were injured in the rains which also killed 1,778 cattle.

Around 700,000 people have been affected, many people suffered crop and property losses, Durrani said.

“We have already distributed 6,670 tents and 2,378 metric tons of food items, while the prime minister promised to immediately rush 20,000 more tents,'' he said.

The government has set up several medical camps where treatment has been offered to nearly 3,000 people suffering gastrointestinal diseases and more than 2,500 cases of malaria.

“We have not launched any appeal for foreign assistance. We are so far relying on own resources and we hope we can handle the situation,'' Durrani said.

He stressed the rescue work is over and rehabilitation work including repair of roads and infrastructure has started.

Pakistan floods kill 455, affect five million

Monsoon floods in Pakistan have killed 455 people over the past five weeks and affected more than five million, according to the latest figures from the government's disaster relief agency.

Pakistan suffered devastating floods in the past two years, including the worst in its history in 2010 when catastrophic inundations across the country killed almost 1,800 people and affected 21 million.

As in the previous two years, most of those hit by the latest floods were in Sindh province, where the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) said more than three million have been affected, with 890,000 in Punjab and nearly a million in Baluchistan.

More than 260,000 people around the country have sought shelter in relief camps since early September, though this figure is down from the 290,000 reported by NDMA two and a half weeks ago.

The data published by NDMA on Monday said more than 1.1 million acres (450,000 hectares) of crops were affected by the floods.

Ex-President Must-Have-a-Reefer, Arrested by Stuart Wilde

The former president of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf, that I named “Must-Have-a-Reefer” – is alleged to have gotten into power by drug smuggling.

He has been arrested. It’s all part of the global clean up I reckon.

Charges were brought against him and so he fled to Pakistan some years ago, but recently he went back hoping the populace might have forgotten what a true blue bastard he is, and that they would elect him one more time. Ego trips are deadly.

P.S. Must-Have-a-Reefer was violent and cruel, he was much in favour of the Americans bombing Pakistanis with their drones and other planes. That did not endear him to the authorities or the people there.
