(Newser) – Children of British diplomats stationed in Pakistan are returning home amid security concerns following the Marriott Hotel terrorist bombing in Islamabad last month. Britain will also allow spouses and other dependents to join the 60 kids as instability grows in the volatile nation, the Daily Telegraph reports. The departures are set for the coming days, and follow similar action by other diplomatic missions.
