Pakistan’s prime minister Imran Khan has rejected calls to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize after a flare-up in tensions with neighbouring India. Tensions ramped up between the two countries last week in a series of military clashes in which Pakistan admitted gunning down an Indian jet after it crossed the Line of Control in disputed Kashmir. But the hashtag #NobelPeacePrizeForImranKhan trended on Twitter in Pakistan last Thursday after the PM made what he said was a “peace gesture” to release captured pilot Abhinandan Varthaman. The move is widely thought to have eased the flare-up, although international observers are still worried about the ongoing fractious relationship between the two nuclear-armed countries.
