Taliban militants are conspiring to kidnap high-ranking civil and security officials from all over the country to force the Pakistani government to release the family of slain al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

Pakistan's interior ministry has advised all government departments and officials of law enforcement agencies to stay vigilant.

Bin Laden's family members, including his wives and children, have been in custody since the American raid that killed the al Qaeda chief on May 2.
