Pak delegation refuses scan at US airport

The six-member group of the parliament members from Pakistan’s tribal region cut short their official US visit immediately to return home, the Express News channel said.

Abbas Afridi, the head of Pakistani delegation, said the US State Department had invited them to Washington to discuss security and development projects in the tribal region, with a promise that they would not be subjected to body scanning. “We were not scanned when we arrived on March 28 in Washington from Pakistan, but on Saturday when we wanted to travel to another city the authorities told us that we would be scanned,” Afridi said.
“We refused the scanning and now we are returning home,” he said.
