Pakistani police say they have saved an eight-year-old girl, who was kidnapped and forced to strap explosives to her body.

The abduction appears to be part of a plot to attack security forces in northwest Pakistan. 

The details emerged in a news conference held by the police and the girl in Lower Dir in Timergarah.
