Missing Pakistani activist Salman Haider recovered: family

By Mehreen Zahra-Malik ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistani poet and activist Salman Haider who went missing from the capital Islamabad earlier this month, just days after four other human rights campaigners disappeared, has been found, his family said on Saturday. The five missing liberal activists, some of whom have posted blogs criticising the political influence of the military and speaking up for the rights of religious minorities, had each gone missing separately since Jan. 4. "Salman is fine, he is safe and we are happy he is back with us," Haider's brother Zeeshan Haider told Reuters, declining to elaborate on where he was.
