WASHINGTON - The Obama administration will hold back about $800 million in aid to the Pakistani military because Washington is unhappy with Pakistan's expulsion of US military trainers and its campaign against militants, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

The Times, citing three US senior officials, said the United States was suspending or canceling $800 million in aid and equipment -- more than a third of the $2 billion it gives Pakistan for security assistance.
