Countries Breakdown Puzzle (Red Herring Version)

Solve the short clues on the right and left. Then combine the letters and unscramble to form a country name.
• Each pair of clues contains ONE extra red herring letter that is not part of the country anagram!
• A correctly guessed country will reveal the extra red herring letter in the pink grid.
• These 10 letters (which themselves include an extra red herring letter) will unscramble to make one more bonus country!
Example: Clue 1: Mail a letter....SEND; Clue 2: Not dry....WET; SEND + WET (minus red herring letter T) = SWEDEN

Is it Kama instead of Karma? Nice variation with the 'red herring'!

Bonus country name needs to be updated. So good luck adding five more pairs of clues.

Ouch, pesky countries messing quizzes up by inventing new names.

Btw a little bit more time wouldnt hurt. Thinking about anagrams is tough as it is but with the extra letter your brain is working extra hard. It is not like the stats are extremely high atm (not extremely low either, but it is nice when the average is above 50% though I like tough quizzes )
