Report Says U.S. Diplomats Face More Harassment In Pakistan

The Pakistani government is making the work of U.S. diplomats in the country more and more difficult.

In a fresh report, the State Department's inspector general said the harassment "has reached new levels of intensity" since November when NATO airstrikes accidentally killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, prompting Islamabad to suspend most military cooperation.

The report said the harassment includes delayed issuances of visas as well as blocked shipments for aid programs and construction projects.
