American Kidnapped In Pakistan

LAHORE, Pakistan, Aug. 13 (UPI) — Gunmen kidnapped a U.S. businessman Saturday from his home in Lahore, Pakistan, police said.

Police told The Nation newspaper “some two dozen” armed men converged on the guarded home of 65-year-old Jason Warner and abducted him about 3:30 a.m.

Several security guards were injured in the attack at Warner’s compound, the newspaper said.

The BBC reported Warner works as a contractor associated with the U.S. government in foreign aid.

Warner has lived in Pakistan for seven years and maintains a principal residence in Islamabad, but also had a home to the south in Lahore, The Nation said.

There was no immediate report of demands for ransom.

Anti-U.S. sentiment is increasing in Pakistan. The use of unmanned aircraft near the border of Afghanistan that have killed civilians has been an issue for more than year among Pakistanis concerned over sovereignty. Hostility increased in May when U.S. Navy SEALs killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan without Islamabad’s prior knowledge.
