ISLAMABAD – The body of a Pakistani national, who was killed in an attack by Houthis on Abu Dhabi this week, was repatriated and handed over to his family.

Pakistan’s embassy in Abu Dhabi shared a tweet about the development saying Mamoor Khan’s body was repatriated to Peshawar Airport from Abu Dhabi. Khan's body was flown to Peshawar Airport from Abu Dhabi Airport where Pakistani diplomatic staff was also present.
