ISLAMABAD: President Barack Obama has asked Pakistan to free a detained U.S. official Raymond Davis, while insisting that he was not “callous” about the deadly shooting that led to the US employee’s arrest. According to private TV report, in his first public remarks on a case that has cast a chill over an already uneasy partnership, Obama said that detained official Raymond Davis enjoyed diplomatic immunity under the Vienna Conventions.

“We expect Pakistan… to abide by the same convention,” Obama told a news conference. “We’re going to be continuing to work with the Pakistani government to get this person released,” he said. “Obviously, we’re concerned about the loss of life. We’re not callous about that, but there is a broader principle at stake,” Obama said.-ONLINE
