JHELUM, Pakistan (AP) - A 5-year-old British boy has been released unharmed, two weeks after he was kidnapped from his grandparents' house in central Pakistan.

A Pakistani official says a ransom was paid for the freedom of Sahil Saeed.

The boy, who is of Pakistani origin, was found in a small village about 20 miles southeast of the city where he was taken.

Pakistani authorities have said someone in the family was involved in the abduction, but the family denies it. A relative also says no ransom was paid.
