It was unclear what prompted the moves but the developments come weeks after Pakistan barred a US diplomat from leaving the country after he killed a Pakistani motorcyclist in Islamabad.

The latest blow to relations came on Saturday, when Pakistani authorities banned a United States military attache from leaving as planned, Pakistan's The Nation and Express Tribune newspapers reported.

Col Hall, the defence and air attaché at the USA embassy, had hit and killed a motorcyclist at a traffic signal in Islamabad on April 7 and injured another.

It also ordered the government to decide about adding his name to the Exit Control List, which controls the movement of people wanted by courts or those involved in corruption. His father had approached the Islamabad High Court to stop the diplomat from leaving the country.

Arrest orders have also been given for all other officials involved in helping Colonel Joseph flee from the police station, the source further said.

Agencies add: A C-130 plane landed at Nur Khan airbase in Rawalpindi on Saturday morning to carry Col Joseph Emanuel Hall, the U.S. Defense attache stationed in Islamabad, a senior Interior Ministry official told Turkish news agency Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue.

However, according to the correspondent, the FIA team is awaiting orders from the top authorities to released the USA official.

"For the privacy and security of those involved, we can not disclose the diplomat's current location", the State Department spokesperson said.

Diplomatic ties between Pakistan and the USA have not been very ideal of late, and some recent developments suggest they are further deteriorating.

A US State Department spokesperson in Washington would neither confirm nor deny them.

Tensions between the USA and Pakistan have been rising over the fatal accident, which infuriated many Pakistanis and has resulted in the two countries restricting the movement of each other's remaining diplomats, Reuters reported. Six weeks ago, the State Department threatened to impose a travel restriction on Pakistan's Washington diplomatic corps if the harassment did not end by Friday.

USA authorities have previously said he can not be detained or attempted because he's got diplomatic immunity.
