Raymond Allen Davis is a former United States’ soldier who worked for the US Consulate in Lahore, Pakistan. On January 27, 2011, working under cover for the CIA, Davis shot two Pakistani men in a busy market area of Lahore alleging self-defence, and claiming that the two men were armed and were going to kill him.
