In Pakistan, authorities have prevented a U.S. diplomat from boarding a U.S. military helicopter and leaving Pakistan, just over a month after the American diplomat, Joseph Hall, allegedly ran two red lights and hit a motorcyclist, killing him. A Pakistani court has ruled Hall doesn’t have complete diplomatic immunity, and he may face prosecution in Pakistan. The case has sparked rising tensions between the U.S. and Pakistan. Meanwhile, in more news from Pakistan, thousands of protesters gathered in Karachi on Sunday to demand justice for Pakistan’s Pashtun ethnic minority. The protesters were denouncing military violence against the Pashtuns, which is carried out under the guise of operations against the Taliban and other militant groups.
