The kidnapped son of Pakistan’s ex-Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani has been rescued in Afghanistan in a joint Afghan-US special forces operation.
Pakistani officials said he would be transferred to Pakistan after undergoing medical checks.
Ali Haider Gilani was kidnapped three years ago in Multan as he was campaigning in elections for the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP).
The Taliban were long believed to be behind the kidnapping.
