Mumbai: Movements at sea being closely monitored after Hafiz Saeed's release

Saeed also said on Saturday that his detention in Pakistan and arrest of Hurriyat leaders in India was part of worldwide agenda.

MML is not recognised by the Election Commission of Pakistan, but it still participated in the by-polls-NA-120 in Lahore and NA-4 in Peshawar- through its "proxy" candidate.

Talking to a group of columnists at the JuD headquarters in Chauburji here on Sunday, the JuD chief, who carries a bounty of $10 million announced by the USA for his role in militant activities, said he would continue supporting the Kashmiris fighting the Indian forces.

The JuD chief walked free on November 24 after the Pakistan government decided against detaining him further in any other case.

US pulls out of UN's migration pact
He added that the United States "has the experience and expertise to help ensure that this process leads to a successful outcome". Ambassador Nikki Haley said the US will continue in its "generosity" by supporting migrants and refugees around the world.

"I was detained for 10 months only to stop my voice for Kashmir", he had said. "I also dedicate 2018 for Kashmiris who are struggling for freedom", Saeed said while meeting a group of columnists at the Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) headquarters in Chauburji in Lahore.

The Trump administration too has expressed "deep concern" over Saeed's release and asked the Pakistan government to make sure that he is arrested and charged for his crimes. He was also put under house arrest soon after the Mumbai attack in 2008, but a local court in Pakistan ordered his release in 2009.

Saeed was the mastermind of 2008 Mumbai attacks that left 166 people dead.

"This had been done to harm the Kashmir cause".

Daniel Abt stripped of maiden Formula E victory
Audi, in their first weekend as a full works entry, were also fined 5,000 euros ($5,944) for a separate infringement. Abt trailed long-time race leader Mortara before the Swiss-born driver spun his vehicle with two laps to go.

He also said his detention in Pakistan and Hurriyat leaders in India was part of worldwide agenda.

The MML was formed when Saeed was under house arrest in Lahore.

Saeed termed it a good sign that Pakistan's flags were being hoisted in various parts of India, and Indian Muslims distributed candies after his release.

Sheikh Yaqoob, a JuD-backed candidate who secured 6,000 votes, had announced that the JuD which has the blessing of Saeed would contest the 2018 elections. The White House further said that Saeed's release points at Pakistan's failure to combat terrorism and providing sanctuary for terrorists on its soil.

Plenty of football fans are raging after Paul Pogba's Man City comments
They'll be hoping to close the eight point gap on rivals Manchester City this evening when they face Arsenal at the Emirates. The Spanish stopper added: "We're really happy".

Earlier this week, Saeed hired a law firm to file a plea before the United Nations on his behalf.
