Islamabad, June 1: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has denounced the abduction and murder of Pakistani journalist Saleem Shahzad.
‘The US strongly condemns the abduction and killing of reporter Saleem Shahzad,’ Asia Times Online, for which the dead journalist worked, quoted her as saying.
‘His work reporting on terrorism and intelligence issues in Pakistan brought to light the troubles extremism poses to Pakistan’s stability,’ she said.
Shahzad, who wrote extensively on radical Islamic groups in Pakistan, was abducted from Islamabad Sunday, apparently by intelligence operatives. His tortured body was found in Punjab province Tuesday.
