The Myanmar Times - - World -

Pak­istan has im­posed a travel ban on a lead­ing jour­nal­ist after he sparked an up­roar by re­port­ing that civil­ian of­fi­cials had clashed with the mil­i­tary over its covert sup­port for mil­i­tants. Cyril Almeida, an as­sis­tant edi­tor at Dawn, the coun­try’s old­est and most pres­ti­gious English daily, an­nounced yes­ter­day he had been placed on the “Exit Con­trol List”. The re­port pub­lished on Oc­to­ber 7 prompted threats on so­cial media and was de­nied three times by the of­fice of Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif.
