American aid worker kidnapped in Pakistan

| No Comments

An American aid worker that was kidnapped from his Pakistani home in August, is now an Al Qaeda hostage.

Warren Weinstein was kidnapped in Pakistan, ABC reported, but won't be released until the United States meets the nine demands the Al Qaeda has requested via video.

Weinstein worked as a development expert with furniture sellers and dairy farmers. His work was uncontroversial ABC reported.

This kidnapping comes as a shock because the tactic hasn't been used as a weapon in Pakistan since Danny Pearl was kidnapped and executed in 2002.

According to ABC, Weinstein's kidnapping was more of a political statement than it was to make money.
