Conference Slams Defense Systems in Pakistan

The military and intelligence chiefs arrived at the Parliament on helicopters amidst growing public anger over their ignorance of Bin Laden's whereabouts and the reported US raid.

The Director General of Inter-Services Intelligence apologized to the nation and offered to resign over the debacle.

Reports indicate that opposition lawmakers have strongly criticized the military and sought guarantees that Abbottabad like operation will not happen again in future.

While the country's lawmakers get a briefing from the top military and intelligence officials over the circumstances surrounding the death of Osama bin Laden, just outside the Parliament these protesters say the nation must also be told the whole truth about the controversy.

The activists of the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf and civil society members tried to break the security cordon in an attempt to march towards the Parliament.

The protestors condemned the government and called for the review of ties with the United States.

Critics say people have genuine concerns about the country's security.


Facing pressure, the government plans to initiate what it says is inter-agency process to define the clear parameters of Pakistan's so-called anti-terror cooperation with the US.
