Denmark closes embassy in Islamabad

Denmark embassy in Islamabad was closed for unspecified period Friday and German Embassy was handling consular activities for Danes in Pakistan.

Denmark said Friday it has temporarily closed its embassy in Pakistan following violent protests over sacrilegious caricatures.

“Our staff are still in the country but not at the embassy in Islamabad,’ foreign ministry in Copenhagen said.

Denmark last week temporarily closed its embassies in Lebanon, Syria, Iran and Indonesia, after anti-Danish protests and threats against staff.

The Foreign Ministry said the German Embassy in Islamabad was handling consular activities for Danes in Pakistan.
