Police safely recover US development expert kidnapped in Pakistan
LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) ' Police say they have safely recovered a U.S. development expert who was kidnapped almost two weeks ago from the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore.
Lahore police chief Malik Ahmed Raza says authorities found 70-year-old Warren Weinstein during an early morning operation Thursday in Khushab city.
Raza says authorities tracked Weinstein after obtaining leads from three arrested suspects and also by tracking mobile phone calls.
Weinstein is the country director in Pakistan for J.E. Austin Associates, a U.S.-based firm that advises a range of Pakistani business and government sectors.
Khushab is also located in Punjab province, where Lahore is the capital.
