Pakistan Stops US Diplomat From Leaving Islamabad

Hall is accused of running a red light and killing Ateeq Baig on April 7.

A United States diplomat, whose auto hit a motorcycle in Pakistan's capital of Islamabad and killed a 22-year-old man last month, was on Sunday stopped from flying out on an American military aircraft by the Federal Investigation Agency, reported Dawn. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorised to brief reporters.

"We are in regular communication with our Pakistani counterparts".

The Kohsar police arrested Syed Taimoor Iqbal from the parking area of the district and sessions court Islamabad as he had allegedly threatened and assaulted the police officials besides assisting a USA diplomat, escape from police custody after a fatal traffic accident. The move comes after the US required Pakistani diplomats to get permission five days in advance to travel more than 25 miles from their embassy.

The issue has further strained the ties between Pakistan and the USA which are already at odds over the issue of providing safe havens to the Taliban and the Haqqani network terror groups in Afghanistan.

Pakistan on Thursday had confirmed that its diplomats in the United States will face travel restrictions from May 11.

American diplomats have long complained about harassment from police and security officials in Pakistan, who repeatedly get stopped and ticketed for petty offenses that take valuable time and energy to resolves.

'This is a development that could well develop into a full-blown crisis for relations if it's not resolved soon, ' said South Asia expert at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington Michael Kugelman. When Col Hall reached the airbase with eight people from the U.S Embassy accompanying him, he was refused permission to board the aircraft, ostensibly under instructions from hardline elements of the Pakistan establishment.

When Hall's credentials describe him as a diplomat, thus implying he enjoys immunity, Pakistan is contesting it even as the issue has become mired in local courts.

'We are ready for agreement but on the condition of his arrest, ' he said, referring to Colonel Hall.
