• Former Afghan governor kidnapped in Islamabad


    ISLAMABAD: A former governor of Afghanistan’s Herat province has been kidnapped from a market in an upscale district of Islamabad, Pakistani police said Saturday. Wahidi was going to a restaurant in the market with his grandson Friday evening when he was abducted by unidentified men, a police official, who requested anonymity, told Agence France-Presse. The boy reported the kidnapping to the local police station and said Wahidi was in Islamabad to apply for a British visa, police said. Pakistan is in the grip of a homegrown Taliban insurgency but the tightly guarded capital has a very low crime rate in general and the F-7/2 sector where Sayed Fazlullah Wahidi was seized is a high security area that houses politicians, bureaucrats and expats.
