    Pakistan refuses relief work visas for Indians and Israelis
    ISLAMABAD: India and Israel are the only two countries whose aid workers will not be granted special visas by Pakistan to join relief efforts for the millions of people affected by country's worst floods.

    Following a suggestion from foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi for easing visa regulations for foreign aid workers, the interior ministry decided to issue three-month "relief work" visas for those coming to Pakistan to join relief operations.

    A letter sent by the interior ministry to the foreign office made it clear that this special facility will not be available to Indian and Israeli nationals. The foreign ministry was also asked to circulate the letter to all Pakistani missions abroad.
