Washington says its employee belongs to its US embassy's "technical administrative staff" and is therefore entitled to "full criminal immunity".

US television network ABC reported that Davis is a private security officer with experience in the US Special Forces.

A Pakistani court on Thursday defied pressure from Washington for his release and extended his detention for eight more days pending investigations. Public prosecutor Abdul Samad said he would be produced next in court on February 11.

In last month's incident, a third Pakistani was knocked down and killed by a vehicle from the US consulate in Lahore that tried to rescue Davis.
