Pakistan's religious right, in a reflection of growing anger at the U.S., called for the fingerprinting of Americans, a boycott of U.S. products and compulsory AIDS testing for U.S. visitors.

A coalition of Islamic parties, which made considerable gains in October elections, gave a list of demands to the government and threatened demonstrations to push for them.

Interior Ministry spokesman Iftikhar Ahmad called the demands "absurd."
