US journalists asked to leave Pakistan

KARACHI- The US Embassy and consulates in Pakistan have asked the US journalists to leave Pakistan. The US embassy and consulates called on Thursday the US journalists working in Pakistan.

These journalists were issued strict instructions not to leave their hotel premises until necessary and do not hire cabs. These journalists were told of reports that militant groups wanted to take as many US citizens hostage as they can to use them as a ploy for the return of Pak detainees in Afghanistan.
