Govt approaches elders for release of Canadian woman

PESHAWAR: The political administration in Bannu Frontier Region is negotiating with elders of the Janikhel tribe for the release of a Canadian woman abducted along with three Pakistani guides on Tuesday, officials said.

Khadija Abdul Qahaar was reported missing in the region near North Waziristan on Tuesday. She introduced herself as a free-lance journalist, but is not registered with National Union of Canadian Journalists.

She converted to Islam after the 9/11 attacks on the United States and calls herself ‘a supporter of Taliban’ on her website where she posted her comments and reports about the Tribal Areas.
