KABUL (PAN): The Afghan ambassador to the United States was not involved in a fist fight that took place in Washington earlier this week, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kabul said on Sunday.

Two senior diplomats, one of them a son of the attorney general, were reportedly involved in the physical altercation, but the fight did not result in any injury or hospitalisation as reported by a section of the media.

Ambassador Eklil Ahmad Hakimi had not been involved in the incident, the foreign ministry spokesman, Janan Musa Zai, told a press conference, brushing aside romours that the diplomat had been beaten up.

Without naming anyone, Musazai said the ministry had launched a probe into the matter. Two diplomats had been called to Kabul and further details would be released once the interrogation was completed, he added.

On Saturday, an official at the foreign ministry, wishing anonymity, said Aloko had been relieved of his job in the wake of the fist fight.
