The Afghan foreign ministry announced on Sunday that it pulled its ambassador and diplomats from Islamabad after the ambassador’s daughter was kidnapped.
Reuters reported that unidentified assailants on Friday captured and detained Silsila Alikhil, the daughter of Afghanistan’s ambassador to Pakistan Najib Alikhil, for several hours. She reportedly sustained injuries after being “severely tortured,” according to Afghanistan’s foreign ministry.
Pakistani authorities are now investigating the incident.
