US diplomat involved in fatal accident leaves Pakistan


A US diplomat who was involved in a fatal traffic accident has left Pakistan, two days after the diplomat reportedly was barred from leaving the country.

However, the spokesperson did not identify the US diplomat and provided no further details of the case.

Pakistani newspapers reported that the American, identified as a military attache, was blocked on Saturday from leaving Pakistan, forcing the US military aircraft sent on his behalf to depart without him.

An Islamabad court, last week, ruled that the American’s diplomatic immunity might not apply in the traffic accident in which his vehicle hit a motorcycle, killing the 22-year-old driver.
