"Special attention"

Pakistani journalists in the US have been given "special attention."

President Pervez Musharraf may be basking under the new found "friendship" with President Bush after both the countries agreed to fight terrorism together, but it seems America's Immigration and Naturalisation Service doesn't give a damn.

This was starkly evident when Pakistani journalists covering Musharraf's six-day visit to the US, were grilled by the US immigration for nearly two hours in New York.

According to the Daily Times, the immigration officials did'nt even spare two of them who had recently visited the country, one of them on a State Department-sponsored visit.

In the words of one journalist, they were given "special attention."
