Pakistan: Danish journalist kicked out

Danish journalist Puk Damsgård Andersen has been declared persona non grata by Pakistan. Despite Danish pressure, no solution has been found, and the journalist has left Pakistan for Denmark.

This article was prepared by the Islam in Europe blog -

Conservative Pakistani newspaper The Nation, citing sources within the Interior Ministry, reported that Andersen was being deported because she was a target for extremists and authorities were unable to offer her protection.

The newspaper also reported that the Dane had distributed copies of the controversial Mohammed cartoons and ‘her stay with an American official of the US embassy also raised many doubts about her character’.
