Iran diplomat abducted in Pakistan

Iran diplomat abducted in Pakistan

The diplomat's car was ambushed in the tribal region bordering Afghanistan [AFP]


An Iranian diplomat has been kidnapped by armed men in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar, police have said.

His guard was killed in the attack on Thursday morning.

The diplomat was heading from his home to his office with his guard when his car was ambushed in Hayatabad, a neighbourhood near the Khyber tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Noor Zar, a police official, told Reuters news agency: "I confirm that the commercial attache of the Iranian consulate is abducted and his guard has been shot dead."

The abduction came a day after an American aid worker was shot dead outside his home in the city.

Peshawar is the last city on the road to the Khyber Pass, the main land route to Afghanistan.

Mohammed Manzoor, another police official, said that the authorities had cordoned off the city's main roads.

Police are trying to trace the kidnapped Iranian.

Leads to a question. How is "arse" pronounced in the UK? The way it is spelled, with the 'r' or is it one of those stupid British things like Derby is 'Darby' when it's a horse race and actually IS pronounced 'ass'?

Effin morons come up with a language and how to spell it and then go off and add letters in the pronunciation that isn't in the spelling.

Crikey.

Americans & Irish spell it "whiskey" whereas Canadians & Scots spell it "Whisky".
So do we blame the Irish or the US for the added letter guilt?

Sounds like just another day in the third world. It really sucks the necessity of policing such backward hacks.
