U.S. Senator Heads To Pakistan To Discuss Holding Of American

U.S. Senator John Kerry will meet later today with senior officials in Pakistan to discuss the case of an American being held after fatally shooting two Pakistanis.

Pakistan is expected to tell a court that most of its legal experts believe Raymond Allen Davis does have diplomatic immunity, but will leave it to the judge to rule on his status.

Davis admits shooting the men in Lahore on Jan. 27. But says the armed men were trying to rob him.

The U.S. has argued that the former Special Forces soldier and embassy worker should be released because of his diplomatic immunity.

The incident has become a bitter point of contention between Washington and Islamabad, and U.S. officials have threatened to withhold billions of dollars in aid to Pakistan to get Davis freed.
