US withdraws diplomat after India expulsion demand
The United States said it was withdrawing a diplomat from India in hopes it would end a bitter dispute that started with the arrest and strip search of an Indian diplomat in New York.

 

Washington's announcement Friday that it was complying with a demand from New Delhi for the expulsion of the US official came hours after Devyani Khobragade, India's deputy consul general in New York, left the US. (AP)
