Four officials of Pakistan's Atomic Energy Commission were abducted from their office by unidentified persons.

Five employees of the Commission were in their office at Banda Daud Shah tehsil in Karak district when four armed men entered the compound and demanded keys of some vehicles from the drivers there.

Then they took away four officials and three vehicles with them, local daily Dawn quoted police officials as saying.

The office was established a few years back following discovery of high-grade uranium in the area.
