French embassy asks citizens to leave Pakistan after TLP protests
ISLAMABAD/PARIS – The French embassy in Pakistan Thursday urged all its citizens and companies to leave Pakistan temporarily as violent protests paralysed parts of the country.
In an email sent to all French citizens, the embassy stated ‘Due to the serious threats to the French interests in Pakistan, French nationals and French companies are advised to temporarily leave the country.
The departures will be carried out by existing commercial airlines, it further added.
Thousands of TLP activists clashed with law enforcement agencies earlier this week in a demonstration against the arrest of TLP leader Saad Rizvi. Rizvi had also threatened countrywide protests unless Pakistan expelled the French ambassador.
