Pakistan says it has captured Indian pilot, struck targets

The Pakistan government released a screenshot of a video showing a man wearing a dark sweater, holding a mug. It identified him as an Indian pilot who had been shot down and named him as Wing Commander Abhi Nandan.

A statement from India’s foreign ministry called for his immediate release. India has not yet named the pilot.

Tension has been running high since a suicide car bombing by Pakistan-based militants in Indian-controlled Kashmir killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary police on Feb. 14, but the risk of conflict rose dramatically on Tuesday (February 26) when India launched an air strike on what it said was a militant training base.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan called for talks with India and hoped “better sense” would prevail so that both sides could de-escalate.
