Indian doctors for flood relief? Misleading reports

We hope to be able to get some Indian doctors to volunteer for flood relief in Pakistan as a ‘goodwill gesture’ by Aug 24-25. Their number will certainly not exceed 10-15. It may be another 2-4 weeks before they will be able to go to serve in Pakistan if they are permitted,” clarified an organiser in response to an email today. “The 400 figure is sensationalist, and could be counterproductive”

Fair enough. So where did this story come from? 400 peace doctors may not get visas ??
