Comedian Umer Sharif and his wife Zareen Ghazal, who are travelling to the US in an air ambulance, had to spend at least four hours at a police station near Nuremberg Airport during a stopover in Germany.
The air ambulance was to make its first stopover at Nuremberg Airport in Germany after departure from Karachi.
