Durrani Fired

A spokesman for Pakistan’s prime minister has announced that the country’s national security adviser has been fired.

Spokesman Imran Gardaizi says Mahood Durrani was fired because “he gave media interviews on national security issues without consulting the prime minister.” Gardaizi did not elaborate.

Durrani gave an interview to an Indian TV channel in recent days concerning tensions between Pakistan and India triggered by a terror attack on the Indian financial hub of Mumbai.

Durrani, a retired army general, was not immediately available for comment.
