Pakistan’s Punjab province Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that it is time to say goodbye to US aid. Shahbaz’s statement came days after US President Trump alleged that Pakistan received billions of dollars in aid but did not act against “terrorist havens” in the country. “The exaggerated comments being made in the national and international discourse regarding the US aid to Pakistan are tantamount to rubbing salt into the wounds of Pakistanis suffering terrorism, poverty and backwardness,” said Shahbaz.

Five security personnel were killed by terrorists in a police camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district. One of the terrorists, who entered the camp in Pulwama town of south Kashmir, was also killed in the ensuing gunfight, said an Army officer. So far, bodies of two terrorists have been recovered.

Two mysterious explosions were reported off the Digha coast in West Bengal’s East Midnapore district. The explosion sites are said to be well out in the sea, and not within visible range from the coast. Police sources said they have found no material evidence on land. Some hotels located close to the coast are reported to have developed cracks on walls, and glass panes shattered from the impact.

A 26-year-old sword-wielding man attacked and wounded three police officers outside Buckingham Palace in London, prompting Scotland Yard to launch a terror investigation. “A car deliberately drove at a police van and stopped in front of it in a restricted area on Constitution Hill near Buckingham Palace and a struggle ensued with the security officers,” police said. Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the royal family were not in Buckingham Palace at the time.
