Pakistan Puts Islamic Cleric under House Arrest - 2001-10-07


Thousands of protestors in Pakistan have staged anti-U-S rallies after a pro-Taleban Islamic leader was placed under house arrest.

The demonstrations came hours after soldiers and police surrounded the home of Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the leader of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam party early today (Sunday) in Dera Ismail Khan.

The activist cleric has led several recent rallies in the country, protesting anticipated U-S military action in Afghanistan, and the decision by Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf to support the United States in the coalition against terrorism.
