KARACHI: BBC has denied reports that its office in Karachi has been closed due to threats.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, BBC spokesman said that the corporation's Karachi bureau office is not closed and is functioning normally. "Whilst we do not routinely comment on our security procedures, we do, of course, monitor the security conditions wherever we have bureaux, and we take practical measures in response to any potential threats," the spokesman said, adding, "We have had security concerns in Karachi from time to time but our bureau there is fully operating."
