The body of a Polish geologist murdered by the Taliban in Pakistan was brought home Wednesday aboard a Pakistani plane.

"We will continue to conduct an intensive investigation and seek perpetrators of this crime," officials of the Polish and Pakistani foreign ministries said after a ceremony at Warsaw's military airport.

Pakistan's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Malik Amad promised that Pakistan would cooperate with Polish prosecutors on the investigation.

"On behalf of the government of Pakistan and Pakistani people, let me express condolences over the brutal murder of Piotr Stanczak," Amad was quoted as saying by Polish news agency PAP.

Taliban militants abducted Stanczak, who was in Pakistan surveying oil and gas fields for a Polish company, in northwestern Pakistan last September, demanding a swap for imprisoned Taliban militants.

Stanczak was killed in February after the Pakistani government missed a deadline for releasing the imprisoned Taliban fighters.
