USAF C-130 returns without USA diplomat involved in Pakistani's death

On April 7, his auto ran a red light and a motorcyclist, Ateeq Baig, 22, was killed in the capital, Islamabad. Later, the C-130 returned to Afghanistan without the "killer" diplomat.

Fraying ties between once-close allies saw a few more threads snap this weekend after what appeared to be a failed American rescue mission aimed at airlifting Col Joseph Emanuel Hall, a defence attaché at the US Embassy in Islamabad.

The Islamabad High Court on Friday on a petition filed by the deceased's father ruled that the United States diplomat does not have absolute immunity in the country. But Washington has long believed it actually shelters the Taliban's leaders, and President Donald Trump has cut off military aid in an effort to pressure Pakistan.

Pakistani authorities have imposed "reciprocal" restrictions on the movement of US diplomats in the country after Washington took similar measures.

In a dramatic development in the USA diplomat case who crushed to death a biker in Islamabad, a special aircraft arrived at the Nur Khan Airbase on Saturday noon to take along Col. Joseph Emanuel who is facing travel restrictions after the April 7 incident.

Separately, Pakistan's foreign ministry said it would apply travel restrictions to all US diplomatic staff similar to those applied by Washington, according to a notification sent to the US Embassy on Friday and obtained by Reuters.

The spokesman of Ford said in an interview,"This is an extremely fluid situation, we are working hard to get replacement parts". With parts in short supply, Ford was forced to suspend F-150 production at the two plants that make the popular truck.

The issue has further strained the ties between Pakistan and the United States which are already at odds over the issue of providing safe havens to the Taliban and the Haqqani network terror groups in Afghanistan.

The Trump administration has also sought to strengthen ties with India, Pakistan's bitter rival.

'This is a development that could well develop into a full-blown crisis for relations if it's not resolved soon, ' said South Asia expert at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington Michael Kugelman.

His father had approached the Islamabad High Court to stop the diplomat from leaving the country.

A spokesman for the U.S. embassy in Islamabad declined to comment on the events of Saturday.

'We are ready for agreement but on the condition of his arrest, ' he said, referring to Colonel Hall. "So far no government official or US Embassy official has offered us the agreement".
