ISLAMABAD – A scuffle over security checking was witnessed Saturday between Saudi army officer and official of Airport Security Force (ASF) at Islamabad Airport.

The Online news agency reported that the Saudi officer lost his temper and started abusing the ASF official when he was stopped for security check up. The exchange of abuses led to scuffle and other security officials reached to mediate between the both.
