American lives in Pakistan will be in danger if the US attacks Iraq, Maulana Samiul Haq, a leader of the newly powerful Islamic party alliance said during a rally in Islamabad.
"If the US attacks Iraq there will be open war here," Haq, a leader of the newly powerful Islamic party alliance said, speaking in front of some 400 protestors outside Islamabad's Red Mosque.
"No American will be safe here," he said.
The rally was part of a nationwide protest, called by the Islamic bloc against possible USA-led military strikes on Iraq if it is found to possess weapons of mass destruction.
