Order against aid group halted
Pakistan’s Interior Ministry has halted an order it made closing the office of the international aid group Save the Children in Islamabad, an official said.
The senior Interior Ministry official did not elaborate. He spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to discuss the decision.
On Thursday, Pakistan shuttered the group’s main office in the capital for what the government said were actions “violating its charter.” Pakistani authorities have accused Save the Children of helping the CIA find Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The aid group denies any involvement.
