British Newspapers Reports About Davis Being CIA Spy
The US gunman, Raymond Davis, who shot dead two men in Lahore, triggering a diplomatic crisis between Pakistan and the United States, is a CIA agent who was on assignment at the time of the incident, British newspaper claimed.
Based on interviews in the US and Pakistan, the newspaper quoted a Pakistani intelligence official that the 36-year-old former special forces soldier is employed by the CIA.
Pakistani officials believe the vehicle's occupants were also CIA because they came from the same suburban house where Davis lived.
The US refused Pakistani demands to interrogate the two men who crushed another Pakistan with vehicle and on Sunday a Pakistani intelligence official said they had left the country.
