Rights group calls for release of Pakistani rights activist

Amnesty International has urged Pakistan to release a Pashtun rights activist who was detained upon her arrival in the country. The London-based rights group condemned the arrest of Gulalai Ismail, who was detained as soon as she arrived at an Islamabad airport from London. In a statement, Amnesty International said she was being detained solely for her peaceful human rights work . Ismail is a critic of the Pakistani military s operations in the country s tribal regions in which many innocent civilians have been killed. She has been a supporter of the Pashtun Protection Movement, a group which denounces perceived high-handedness by security forces and their operations in the country s northwestern regions. It calls for judicial probes into those killed by the military in the name of its war on terror.
