ImageAn Iranian diplomat taken hostage in Pakistan in 2008 has been freed in the country, Iranian state television reports.

Gunmen seized Heshmatollah Atharzadeh as he drove to work at the Iranian consulate in Pakistan's north-western city of Peshawar in November 2008.

Mr Atharzadeh was the commercial attache at the consulate.

His abduction came amid a surge of violence in the region and a wave of attacks blamed on Islamist militants.
