Attempted kidnap of Spanish cyclist.
Spanish adventurer Javier Colarado was almost kidnapped as six officers in Pakistan were almost shot dead as they tried fought to rescue him as he was travelling to Quetta, the provincial capital of the Baluchistan which is one of the most dangerous part of the country. Local officials said that one of the six Levies, the tribal police force were killed while the other five were injured during the fire fight.
“Armed men opened fire and wanted to kidnap the foreigner” a local Levies officer said. Colarado was also taken to hospital bullet wound. He was released week later on Wednesday uninjured and well. It was suggested that he gave the rest of Pakistan a miss but he intended to finish that adventure the point he started it.
This attack took place in the same district Mastung, the same area from which a a bomb killed 24 shia pilgrims in a savage attack. The locals reacted in amazement as he travelled through the area despite it’s reputation.
