Protests erupted across Pakistan on Thursday after a US court convicted a Pakistani scientist of trying to kill US servicemen in Afghanistan, with President Asif Ali Zardari also calling for justice.

Several thousand people took to the streets in support of Siddiqui in major Pakistani cities, as Zardari ordered the government to look into providing her with legal help and voiced hope that justice would prevail.

Prosecutors claimed that she was arrested in possession of notes indicating plans to attack the Statue of Liberty and other New York landmarks.

Although she was not charged with terrorism, prosecutors described her as a would-be terrorist who had plotted to bomb New York.

The mother of three was accused of grabbing a rifle at an Afghan police station where she was being interrogated in July 2008 and trying to gun down US servicemen.
