Wojciechowska, the former editor in chief of National Geographic Poland, said on Facebook she is currently in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan.
“In the north-western part of Pakistan, close to the border with Afghanistan, where we were filming another episode of the ‘Woman at the Edge of World’ program, we were detained by the Inter-Services Intelligence,” Wojciechowska said in her post.
“Our equipment was forcibly confiscated and we were prevented from working. We spent the next days under house arrest under constant police and military supervision.”
She said that after almost 24 hours travelling through the mountains under escort, she arrived in Islamabad with her colleagues.
“We still have not regained our cameras, but please keep your fingers crossed that our entire team returns home safe and sound,” Wojciechowska added.
