News Brief: Taliban Holding Two Pakistani Nuclear Scientists

Posted by K.E. White on March 14, 2007

Unbelievable, but apparently true.

From the Islamic News Agency:

Two top nuclear scientists of Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) are currently in Taliban custody. The two were working at PAEC’s facility in North West Frontier Province (NWFP).

The two scientists were kidnapped about six months ago. To avoid international embarrassment Pakistan Government has kept this information under wraps, said an Indian private news channel “Zee News”.
