Raymond Davis indicted for double murder


LAHORE – The Lahore Session court on Wednesday formally charged Raymond Davis on two counts of murder at a hearing held at Kot Lakhpat Jail, a police official said, in a move that may further strain relations with the United States.
Raymond Davis, 36, shot dead two Pakistanis in the eastern Punjab city on Jan. 27 following what he described as an attempted armed robbery. He said he acted in self-defence and the United States says he has diplomatic immunity and should be repatriated.
