"Prime Minister Imran Khan met British foreign minister Boris Johnson this morning," Lodhi tweeted as she put out a picture of the meeting.

She deleted the tweet after around an hour and put out another picture "Sorry typo in the previous tweet. Prime Minister Imran Khan Met British PM this morning".

It is not the first time that Lodhi has caused embarrassment to Pakistan.

In 2017, Lodhi held up a photograph of a scarred girl at the United Nations, she said she was offering proof of "brutality" in Kashmir.

But the photo turned out to be that of a 17-year-old Palestinian girl, taken in Gaza in 2014 by award-winning photographer Heidi Levine.

The teenager had been injured by shrapnel in an Israeli attack.
