PESHAWAR - Pakistani authorities briefly questioned three American diplomats on Monday in the city of Peshawar after weapons were found in their vehicles, police said.

The diplomats, accompanied by three Pakistani nationals, were stopped at a routine checkpoint where they refused to have their vehicles searched, police said.

When police checked anyway, they said they found several rifles, pistols and ammunition. The Pakistanis were charged with illegal possession of weapons, police said.
