ISLAMABAD: The US diplomat, who killed Pakistani youth in an accident on April 7, will be allowed to leave Pakistan on completion of judicial proceedings.

But Pakistani authorities prevented him from boarding that plane. It was reported that he would be allowed to travel to the US after completion of criminal trial against him.

Under the directions, issued for US diplomats in view of possible danger of incident of terrorism, that they should keep their vehicles in between other vehicles on traffic signals and instead of stopping they should immediately cross empty roads despite red signal.
