  • Description

    Pakistan's President, General Zia ul-Haq, is said to have assured the United States that all possible action is being taken to protect U.S. citizens in his country. This follows an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad on Wednesday (21 November), in which one American was killed. An angry mob stormed the Embassy after radio reports in Pakistan alleged that a U.S. conspiracy was behind the seizure of the Saudi Arabian Grand Mosque in Mecca -- Islam's holiest city. U.S. State Department spokesman, Hodding Carter, said on Wednesday (21 November) that General Zia had personally telephoned President Jimmy Carter to apologise for the Embassy attack.
