US has said it is reviewing its financial assistance to Pakistan. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Islamabad of treating US diplomats "badly" and said that the American financial assistance to Pakistan is under review. 

He was responding to questions from Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, who said the US should stop providing any financial assistance to Pakistan until it releases Shakil Afridi. 

Afridi is a doctor, who helped the CIA hunt down Osama bin Laden in 2011. Mr Pompeo said with respect to Pakistan, US released far fewer funds in 2018 than the previous year. 

He said the remainder of the funds available are under review and his guess is that that number will be smaller still. 

Talking to members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Mr Pompeo said that the State Department officials are not being treated well by the Pakistani government either. 

He said this a real problem that the US need to take the measure on this issue.
