Taliban threatens Pakistan

Pakistan’s al Qaeda-linked Taliban warned the government yesterday it would punish any move to release a U.S. consulate employee accused of murdering two Pakistanis in a case that has further strained ties with Washington.

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s al Qaeda-linked Taliban warned the government yesterday it would punish any move to release a U.S. consulate employee accused of murdering two Pakistanis in a case that has further strained ties with Washington.

Raymond Davis, the U.S. consular employee jailed in the Pakistani city of Lahore for shooting two Pakistanis last month, says he acted in self-defense during an armed robbery.

Washington says Davis has diplomatic immunity and should be released, but the Pakistani government says the matter should be decided in court.
