Jo Johnson & Farhan Bokhari, "Pakistan hunts for missing diplomat and nuclear staff," Tehran Times, February 13, 2008.


Tariq Azizuddin, Pakistan’s ambassador to Afghanistan since December 2005, was on his way to Kabul from Peshawar in north-west Pakistan when he disappeared along with his driver and bodyguard in the Khyber tribal region, before midday on Monday.


With a week to run until a general election, opposition parties on Tuesday seized on his apparent abduction, which coincided with that of two nuclear scientists, as further evidence of the government’s failure to stem mounting extremism.
