Iran says a nuclear scientist it claims was abducted by the US has taken refuge in its interest section at Pakistan's embassy in Washington, state media say.
"A few hours ago Shahram Amiri took refuge at Iran's interest section at the Pakistan embassy in Washington, wanting to return to Iran immediately," Iranian state radio reported on Tuesday morning.

I wonder how many members of his family Iran is holding hostage in order to force his return?
"He has been in the United States of his own free will and obviously he is free to go," Mr Crowley said. "In fact, he was scheduled to travel to Iran yesterday, but was unable to make all of the necessary arrangements to reach Iran through transit countries," he added.
Putting aside my theory for the moment, the US would give further credence to Amiri's claims if they demanded of the embassy to have him handed over.
