U.S. Woman Shot and Wounded in Pakistan by Men Claiming to Be Militants

Men claiming to be Islamic militants shot and wounded an American woman in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi on Thursday, leaving leaflets in her car naming her and saying they had targeted her because she was American, police said. Gunmen on motorbikes shot Debra Lobo in the face and the hand as she drove home from the dental college where she worked as a vice principal. Police said it was unclear if the attack had actually been carried out by militants, or by men posing as militants.
