Pakistan has relaxed restrictions on disgraced nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan and allowed him to see friends outside the house where he has been detained for the past four years, his wife said on Thursday. “There has been relaxation to this extent that he was allowed to go the Academy of Sciences yesterday," Henny Khan told Reuters, referring to an academy in the capital, Islamabad, of which Khan was president in the 1990s. “But we don't know, we have to wait and see whether that's a one-off thing or they're going to allow him on a regular basis,” she said.
