Obama urges Pakistan to free Davis | Daily News live online News
WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama urged Pakistan Tuesday to free a detained US official, while insisting that he was not "callous" about the deadly shooting that led to the US employee's arrest.

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. (AFP)
