US State Department has decided to close its embassy and its consulates across Pakistan for two days citing security concerns emerging after Davis release.

Reliable sources said that the decision was taken due to security situation emerging after the rows of protests against release of Raymond Davis, who was arrested after he killed three Pakistanis in Lahore. The embassy would not work on Friday (today) and would reopen on Monday.

When asked for his official version, US Embassy Spokesman Alberto Rodriguez confirmed that the embassy and consulates would remain close for two days. He told Online that the embassy would start its routine functioning from Monday.

It is pertinent to mention that Davis was suddenly released Wednesday by a local court. Release of Davis, who is also perceived as CIA agent in the country, caused anger and reaction among the masses in Pakistan that triggered protests in parts of the country.
