Police don’t know who kidnapped American
ISLAMABAD — Authorities were still searching Sunday for clues about who kidnapped an American in Pakistan but came up with no leads after questioning the guards at his house when he was abducted, police said Sunday.
Gunmen snatched development expert Warren Weinstein before dawn Saturday after tricking his guards and breaking into his house in the eastern city of Lahore. The brazen raid heightened fears among aid workers, diplomats and other foreigners already worried about Islamic militancy and anti-U.S. sentiment in Pakistan.
Mr. Weinstein is the Pakistan country director for J.E. Austin Associates, a development contractor that has received millions of dollars from the aid arm of the U.S. government, according to a profile on LinkedIn, a networking website. He had told his staff that would be wrapping up his latest project and moving out of Pakistan by Monday, just a couple days after he was kidnapped.
Suicide bomber attacks police station
ALGIERS — A suicide bomber crashed a small truck apparently laden with explosives into a police station in the capital of the Kabylie region east of Algiers early Sunday, injuring at least 29 people.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Kabylie, the Berber capital, is the stronghold of al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.
A police station across town was attacked by a suicide bomber in August 2008, killing two officers.
The verdant region of mountains and valleys has become the base for the al Qaeda affiliate that sprang from an Algerian insurgency movement in late 2006.
