(CNN) Six Pakistani cricket players are in isolation in New Zealand after testing positive for Covid-19, according to New Zealand's national cricket body on Thursday, and the whole squad has been issued with a "final warning" after several members were seen breaching rules on isolation. New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said it " was made aware today that six members of the Pakistan touring squad, currently in managed isolation in Christchurch, have tested positive for COVID-19." Four of the cases were new and two of the cases were "historical," the news release added. NZC said all players had tested negative for the virus before departing from Lahore on four separate occasions. "As a consequence, the Pakistan team's exemption to train while in managed isolation has been put on hold until investigations have been completed," NZC said.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pakistan gave U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres a dossier on Tuesday accusing India of stoking terrorism in Pakistan, a day after India provided a dossier to some U.N. Security Council members accusing militants from Pakistan of attempting an attack in the disputed Indian territory Kashmir. REUTERS/Mohsin RazaThe tit-for-tat moves come ahead of India joining the 15-member council for a two-year term starting Jan. 1, 2021. Ambassador Munir Akram accused India of violating international law, the U.N. Charter and Security Council resolutions by sponsoring terrorism. U.N. peacekeepers have been deployed since 1949 to observe a ceasefire between India and Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir. The U.N. Security Council blacklisted the head of the Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed in May last year after China dropped its objection to the move, ending a decade-long diplomatic impasse.

She added: "Muslim children will get ID numbers (other children won't) just as Jews were forced to wear the yellow star on their clothing for identification." If introduced however, the bill would apply to all French children. Mazari's tweet was condemned by France's Foreign Ministry, which said in a statement Saturday that the minister spoke in “deeply shocking and insulting terms” of Macron and the whole of France. Some burned effigies of the French president, while others cried "death to France" and called for a boycott of French products. The protests came after Macron vowed to fight “Islamist separatism," which he said was threatening to take control in some Muslim communities around France.

LAHORE, Pakistan (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of mourners attended the funeral of a hardline Pakistani cleric in the eastern city of Lahore on Saturday, defying a government ban on large public gatherings in the wake of rising COVID-19 cases in the country. Despite the coronavirus curbs, tens of thousands turned out to mourn Rizvi, and organisers of the funeral said the government had not told them to limit the gathering. Government officials did not respond to a request for comment about the funeral, which wreaked havoc in Lahore as cellphone services were shut down and major roads blocked for security reasons. A local official, who asked not to be named, said he estimated that close to 200,000 people had attended the event. Earlier this month, the cleric led a march joined by thousands of protesters to Islamabad that blocked a main entry road for hours and saw demonstrators clash with police.

NEW DELHI/ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - India on Saturday summoned a senior Pakistani diplomat over what New Delhi said was a foiled attack this week in the frontier territory of Jammu and Kashmir by a Pakistan-based militant group, a charge the neighbouring country denied. FILE PHOTO: An armed policeman stands guard outside Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi, India, February 15, 2019. India’s Ministry of External Affairs said a protest was lodged with Pakistan’s charge d’affaires in New Delhi. Tension between the nuclear-armed rivals has sharpened since last August, when Modi’s government ended the autonomy of its only Muslim-majority region. India will hold district-level elections this month in Jammu and Kashmir, the first such exercise there since the federal government took away the area’s statehood more than a year ago.

LAHORE, Pakistan (Reuters) - A Pakistani court on Thursday sentenced Islamist leader Hafiz Saeed, founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the militant group blamed by the United States and India for the 2008 Mumbai siege, to 10 years in prison on two charges of terrorism financing, his lawyer said. REUTERS/Faisal MahmoodThe sentences for the two charges - five years each - will run concurrently. He denies any involvement with militancy, including the 2008 Mumbai siege in which 160 people were killed, including Americans. The conviction comes as Pakistan tries to avoid punitive blacklisting by global dirty money watchdog, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which judges a country’s ability to combat illicit financing, including to militant organisations. In FATF’s last review in October, Pakistan was urged to complete an internationally agreed action plan by February 2021 and to demonstrate that terrorism financing probes resulted in effective sanctions.

Islamists say Pakistan agrees to French boycott, end protest

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - A Pakistani Islamist group called off protests over cartoons of Prophet Mohammad on Tuesday saying the government had agreed to their demand for a boycott of French products, the group’s spokesman said. The French embassy in Islamabad declined to comment and Pakistan’s foreign ministry did not respond to a request for comment. Also, all detained protesters and their leaders would be set free immediately, the spokesman said, shortly after he was released. There is a history of violent reactions to perceived incidents of blasphemy in Pakistan, where insulting the Prophet Mohammad carries the death penalty. The Islamist group called off a similar protest in 2017, in which one police and six protesters were killed, after the government agreed to its demands, which included the resignation of the then law minister.
