An Islamic leader with a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head lead a mass rally in Islamabad, Pakistan, on Friday, denouncing India as a terrorist state as thousands chanted for a jihad against the rival nuclear country, Reuters reported.
The Obama administration said Wednesday it now thinks the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya was linked to an affiliate of al Qaeda — an evaluation that comes two weeks after the strike and as the White House has struggled to defend its initial read on the situation.
Thousands of hardline Islamists streamed toward Pakistan's capital in a massive convoy of vehicles Sunday to protest the government's decision to allow the U.S. and other NATO countries to resume shipping troop supplies through the country to Afghanistan.

U.S. Sen. John Kerry said on Sunday that the U.S. relationship with Pakistan was at a "critical moment" because of the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and that there were growing calls to cut aid to the country.
The Pakistani-based militant organization Lashkar-e-Taiba is being viewed increasingly by U.S. political and military leaders as a global terrorist threat. But most Pakistanis remain unaware of the group's activities and agenda and continue to give it significant support.
This means God is happy with us," Mr. Saeed told the crowd of nearly 10,000 supporters as they chanted, "Jihad."
"We are ready for every sacrifice for the liberation of Kashmir," Mr. Saeed added.
