Pakistan court maintains curbs on AQ Khan
LAHORE, Indonesia — A Pakistan court has maintained restrictions on a nuclear scientist who allegedly leaked atomic weapons secrets to Iran, North Korea and Libya.
The court ruled Monday that A.Q. Khan was not allowed to talk about nuclear weapons technology and must inform security agencies before he leaves his house so they can accompany him wherever he goes.
It was ruling in response to a petition by Khan asking that some or all of those curbs be lifted.
His house is guarded by many security officials. The ruling did not say whether they would be withdrawn.
