The body of senior journalist Arshad Sharif, who was assassinated in Kenya, has arrived in Islamabad. Early on Wednesday morning, the jet carrying his body touched down at the Islamabad Airport.

On the evening of Sunday, October 23, Sharif was shot and murdered by Kenyan police in what the country’s officials described as a “mistaken identity” shooting just outside Nairobi.

At the airport in Islamabad, family members of Arshad Sharif were present. Then, the police gave his body to his family.

The body has been kept in the Quaid-e-Azam International Hospital’s mortuary. Arshad Sharif’s friends and family were still present in the mortuary.

On Thursday at 2:00 PM, the funeral prayer will be recited at the Shah Faisal Mosque. He will be buried in the nation’s capital’s H-11 cemetery.
