Topic: U.S. woman shot and wounded in Pakistan by men claiming to be militants


By Syed Raza Hassan ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - 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. Pakistan is plagued by an Islamist Taliban insurgency but is also home to many other militant groups and criminal gangs. Some Taliban splinter groups have pledged allegiance to Islamic State.
