Demonstrators have gathered in the Pakistani city of Karachi, protesting comments Britain's Prime Minister made during a recent visit to India. David Cameron outraged Islamabad earlier this week when he suggested Pakistan exports terrorism to the rest of the world.

The UK leader later conceded that Pakistan has made moves against terrorist organizations, but said "it still needs to take further steps." About a dozen activists chanted slogans and burned Cameron's image in effigy on Saturday. Rally organizers are calling on their country to cut diplomatic ties with the UK.

Mohammad Yousuf Munir, Rally Organizer, said, "We condemn his statement, the way Cameron has tried to ridicule the whole Pakistani nation, and demand the Pakistani government drop all diplomatic ties with the British government. There should be a protest on an international level, as Pakistan is working in coordination with the international community in its war against terror. This is a sheer injustice."

Pakistan's spy chief has now canceled a visit to London, while Britain's Foreign Office says Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari's visit to the country is still scheduled to take place next week.
