CIA Contractor Aquitted of Double Murder in Pakistan

A CIA contractor who shot and killed two Pakistanis in late January was acquitted of two charges of murder and released on Wednesday.

Raymond Davis, 36, was released after a deal was reached to pay “blood money” to the families of the victims, ending a diplomatic standoff between Pakistan and the United States, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah told Reuters.

 

"The court first indicted him but the families later told court that they have accepted the blood money and they have pardoned him," Sanaullah said. "The court acquitted him in the murder case."
