Last month an unidentified body was found in a Swedish river. It has since been identified as Sajid Hussain, a Pakistani journalist exiled in Sweden.
Sajid Hussain, 39, went missing on March 2. He was last seen getting onto a train in Stockholm en route to Uppsala to pick up keys for his new apartment. He had been studying Arabic and lecturing at Uppsala University since January this year.

Hussain’s reporting on government corruption, disappearances and human rights violations made him a controversial figure in Pakistan. Police raided his house, and he began receiving anonymous death threats. Eventually, he left Pakistan in 2012 for Europe.

Hussain was the former editor and publisher of the paper, Balochistan Times. After his death Balochistan Times released a statement which read:
“Staff are deeply saddened by the demise of our dear friend and the founder of this magazine. As a journalist, (Hussain) was compassionate and wrote extensively on the suffering of the Baloch people. His work often got him into trouble as the authorities did not like his reporting of Balochistan’s forbidden stories, the reason he had to leave and live in exile.”

They are being re-located and preserved in a semi-no-man’s land for future use against either Iran or Russia. That no-man’s land is Balochistan. And the future regime being aligned by the Anglo-American lobby to train these terrorists or the so called self-defense forces – is India.
