Pakistan's Khan on Mossad 'hit list'

February 9 2009
Israel's notorious spy agency, Mossad, plans to kidnap or kill Pakistan's famous nuclear scientist, Abdul Qadeer Khan and his colleagues.

A recently published book by Gordon Thomas on the history of Israel's spy service Mossad, writes that Israeli spies have traced the travel paths of Khan's associates to some countries, the Times of India reported on Sunday.

The book called 'Gideon's Spies' also records how Mossad moved these scientists and Khan from an earlier 'detain' list to a 'kill' list, Thomas added.

Thomas noted that in May 2003, Khan hosted six Pakistani nuclear scientists at his home in Rawalpindi.

Khan, at the centre of a nuclear proliferation scandal, was released by a Pakistani court ruling on Friday after five years of house arrest.

Meanwhile, Pakistani officials have barred US interrogators from a face-to-face confrontation with Khan, insisting the United States has been given full access to his revelations. Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Sunday Khan's network has been broken and it no more exists.(
