Islamabad: Pakistani authorities Wednesday imposed a ban on the publication and sale of a translated
version of a book by al Qaeda leader Aiman al-Zawahiri, saying
it has the potential to incite law and order problems.

The ban on the book "Spaida-e-Sehr Aur Timtamata
Chiragh" was imposed by the government of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa
province in the country`s restive northwest.

The government said all copies of the book would be
forfeited with immediate effect.

Authorities said the book was published by al-Zawahiri
and has "the potential to provoke the religious feelings of
the public".
