Armymen cancel US visit over ‘mistreatment’
LAHORE: A group of Pakistan Army officers have cancelled a visit to the US CENTCOM to protest against the alleged misbehaviour they had to face at the Dallas Airport, a private TV channel reported on Tuesday.
The army delegation boarded a flight from the Dallas Airport to attend a US Defence Department meeting.
Once inside the United Airlines plane, one of the delegation members remarked that he hoped the flight proved to be their last flight and they soon reached their destiny. However, a passenger who overheard them mistook the officials for terrorists. The airport security staff was alerted, who “questioned the Pakistani delegation and misbehaved with them”.
The US Defence Department has apologised for the incident, however the delegation has decided to return home. daily times monitor
