ISLAMABAD — A British journalist held captive by Islamic militants in northwestern Pakistan since March has been released, the British High Commission in Pakistan said Thursday.

Asad Qureshi, who also has Pakistani citizenship, was making a film on militancy for Britain's Channel 4 TV station when he was seized in the tribal regions close to the border with Afghanistan. Large parts of the area are under control of extremists who are hostile to outsiders.

The high commission gave no details except to say Qureshi had been released and was being assisted by consular officials.
