The political party of former Pakistani cricket star Imran Khan has made public what they say is the name of the CIA station chief in Islamabad.
Khan's Pakistan Tehrik-e Insaaf party (PTI) has spearheaded protests against the United States after a deadly drone strike on a seminary linked to the Taliban-linked Haqqani network last week.
CIA spokesman Dean Boyd would not confirm the Islamabad station chief's name and declined to comment on the PTI's claim.
In 2010, the then-Islamabad station chief was forced to leave the country when a Pakistani official admitted his name had been leaked.
In 2011, local media published a name purported to be that of the station chief.
Media reports said that on both occasions the names had been leaked by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) service, as reprisals for what was seen as the CIA's encroaching on the ISI's turf.
