An African-American woman and Muslim convert was detained at the Pakistani border today trying to enter Afghanistan.
The Daily Times reported:
Border authorities at Torkham detained a suspicious African-American woman who was attempting to cross the border into Afghanistan on Thursday.
The woman, identified as, Aisha Rokh Muhammad, 45, who was reportedly a converted Muslim, was on her way to Afghanistan via Torkham border from Peshawar when border authorities detained her for investigation. She was holding proper travel documents and valid visas for Pakistan and Afghanistan, border sources said.
Meanwhile, Landikotal administration arrested a local resident, Najmuddin Ashrafkhel from Khugakhel area and recovered a bomb from his possession, sources said. According to locals, villagers had arrested him while he was trying to plant the bomb.
