FBI agents have been sent to Pakistan in connection with the killings of four American oil company employees, the US Attorney General Janet Reno said.

She declined to comment when asked if the killings might have been linked to the recent US conviction of a Pakistani, Mir Aimal Kasi, for murdering two CIA employees in 1993. She also declined to declare the killings a terrorist act.

Gunmen in Karachi killed four American men and their Pakistani driver on Wednesday. Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif yesterday gave President Bill Clinton his condolences.
