The London Bridge attacker has been identified as a person of Pakistani origin.  On publishing this news, local people entered the newspaper office in Islamabad and demonstrated and shouted slogans.  In fact, a newspaper wrote in its headline that the London Bridge attacker has been identified as Usman Khan, an Islamic terrorist from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.  Usman had stabbed and stabbed two people to death in a terrorist attack on London Bridge last week.  At the same time, several other local newspapers reported that he was born and brought up in Britain and has no connection with Pakistan.

On Monday, some unknown people demonstrated outside the newspaper's office in Islamabad.  The newspaper reported that the angry mob stood outside the office building for about three hours, shouting slogans against the newspaper, laid siege to the premises and took the employees hostage.  He barred employees from entering or exiting the building and demanded an apology in writing.

 Some protesters also misbehaved with newspaper employees.  Media house security personnel had to close the gates to prevent protesters from entering the premises before police and officials arrived.  After hours of talks with the newspaper manager in the presence of an assistant commissioner, the protesters finally agreed to leave after giving warnings.  Various political parties, MPs and media organizations have condemned the incident.
