Jordan's King Abdullah II arrived in Pakistan on Friday and met President Gen. Pervez Musharraf to express support for the earthquake relief effort, a foreign ministry spokeswoman said. Spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam said the purpose of Abdullah's visit to Islamabad was "to personally sympathize with Pakistan." "Jordan is helping us a lot to handle this tragedy," she said, without giving details. Abdullah is the first head of state to visit Pakistan since the earthquake. The official government death toll is between 25,000 and 30,000, though some estimates put the toll at more than 35,000. Most of the deaths were in Pakistan's part of Kashmir.
