ISLAMABAD – Two tribal journalists who were abducted Sunday have safely returned home after more than 24 hours.
It was not immediately known who were the people behind the kidnapping of Shah Nawaz Tarakzai (pictured, center) and Islam Gul Afridi.
Earlier reports said that Shah Nawaz who works for Mashaal Radio was picked up Sunday from a Media Center in Shabqadar, Charsadda by armed gunmen.
Islam Gul, who works for online newspaper Waziristan Times, spoke to his chief editor Farooq Mehsud on October 14 and told him he had received a call from an unknown number. He went missing after that.
