with 2 comments

Gunmen on Monday kidnapped the Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan, Abdul Khaleq Farahi, in the volatile north west of the country.

A spokesman for the Afghan Consulate said the ambassador had been abducted by unidentified armed men in Peshawar, the capital of the North-West Frontier Province.

Pakistan’s Geo News reported that the kidnappers fired at a consular vehicle before abducting the Afghan envoy near the consulate in the Hayatabad area of Peshawar.

Police sources said the driver of the vehicle was killed during the abduction, but there was no more information about the attack.

No-one has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping.
