Pakistani army cancels US trip after 'unwarranted' security checks at Washington airport

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan's military says it has canceled a trip by officers to the United States after they were subjected to "unwarranted security checks" at an airport in Washington.

A statement Wednesday said the delegation had been invited to attend a meeting at U.S. Central Command, in Tampa, Florida.

Pakistan's Dawn newspaper reported the incident took place aboard a plane before takeoff at Dulles airport on Aug. 30. It reported a disagreement had occurred between a member of the delegation and either a passenger or a flight attendant.
