ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistani authorities have barred a US diplomat involved in a fatal traffic accident from leaving the country, forcing an American military aircraft flown in for his departure to leave without him, local media reported. The move came a day after Pakistan said it would restrict the movements of all American diplomats in the country in response to Washington’s similar restrictions on Pakistani embassy diplomats. A spokesman for the US embassy in Islamabad declined to comment and a US State Department spokesperson in Washington would neither confirm nor deny them.
