Islamabad, May 17 (ANI): Many Western embassies in Pakistan have reportedly received letters containing suspicious powder and threats to poison NATO soldiers in Afghanistan.
The letters said 'poison' would be hidden in NATO supplies should Pakistan decide to lift a nearly six-month blockade on supplies troops fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.
News 24 quoted Islamabad police chief Bani Amin , as saying that embassies had received small packets containing black powder, which had been sent for laboratory analysis.
"Embassies have received one sachet each. The problem is that it is in a meagre quantity and difficult even to test," the report quoted Amin, as saying.
"It seems somebody has committed some mischief. We are sending it to a laboratory," he added.
According to some senior Pakistani security officials the French embassy, and the Australian and British High Commissions had received suspicious packages. (ANI)
