Islamabad/Lahore - Pakistan said on Saturday it had cancelled a bus linking Lahore with India's capital New Delhi, the last remaining public transport link between the neighbours divided by a dispute over the Kashmir region.
Islamabad reacted with fury this week after India revoked the special status for the portion of Kashmir that it controls, calling the action illegal, a claim New Delhi denies.
Pakistan has already cut two rail links, suspended bilateral trade and expelled India's ambassador, all part of what it called a diplomatic effort to protest against the decision.
Arshad Ali, tourism officer at Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation that runs the Pakistan leg of the journey, told Reuters the government had issued directives that meant the bus, that departs Lahore six days a week at 0600 local time, was suspended from Saturday onwards.
"The operation will remain suspended till further decision," he said.
