A newly report released Wednesday by a team of Pakistani investigators stated that the killing of an outspoken Pakistani journalist in Kenya was a planned assassination.
This comes weeks after the mysterious slaying triggered condemnations and calls for an independent probe.
Meanwhile, Islamabad police charged two Pakistani businessmen living in Kenya who had hosted Arshad Sharif with involvement in his killing.
The report however did not provide any evidence for its claims and there was no immediate comment from Kenya.
The 50-year-old Sharif was hiding in Kenya to avoid arrest at home on charges of maligning Pakistan’s national institutions a phrase used for critics of the powerful military, which has ruled Pakistan for half of its 75-year history.
