Foreign Office Spokesman Moazzam Ahmed Khan on Thursday said that attack on Malala Yousafzai is reprehensible act and it should not be linked to other matters.

When his attention was drawn that Malala Yousufzai issue is being exploited by US and Britain to launch operation in North Waziristan‚ the spokesman during his weekly press briefing said it is very unfortunate if we think in that way.

He said it was a reprehensible act and is condemnable. He said there is no justification to link this with other matters.
