A US Congress panel on Thursday rejected a proposal to cut off all aid to Pakistan due to concerns over the country's relationship with Islamic militants after the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.



The House foreign affairs committee easily rejected the measure, with five lawmakers voting yes and 39 voting no.

But the bill in its current form would still impose tighter controls over aid, making it contingent on measurable progress by Pakistan.
