missing-activists ISLAMABAD: Pakistani blogger Aasim Saeed who went missing earlier this month has been found but has quickly left the country fearing for his life, his family said on Sunday. "Asim contacted us by phone on Sunday morning and told us that he is well," a relative requesting anonymity told AFP, saying the family had been receiving threats. On Saturday, academic Salman Haider and another blogger whose family asked not to be named were reported safe by their families. Two others remain unaccounted for. Saeed, who is Singapore-based and works in the IT department of the German Merck Group, disappeared on Jan. 4 while visiting Lahore. Aasim Saeed's father, Ghulam Haider, told Reuters Aasim returned to his house briefly on Saturday but then left quickly, and messaged the family on Sunday morning to inform them that he was safe and would call soon. It is not known how the five activists went missing. The Interior Ministry has repeatedly said it was doing all it could to recover the missing men. –AFP/Reuters
