It's a sad world we inhabit, when the focus is on the lad's colour and nationality rather than the fact he is a child who was a long way from his mum. The fact that others have it as hard or harder doesn't make it any less of a traumatic experience for him; just glad some of you aren't my dad!

I think only SPB mentioned colour, hardly focussing on it and as for nationality, that's probably because in that part of the world different standards apply.

It is thanks to his nationality - British - that such an effort was put into his case. Kidnappings happen all the time in Pakistan and the police are often on the payroll, they certainly don't give them the time and energy this young man was fortunate enough to get.

Looks like the "inside job" theory is about to go out the window - just a case of wrong place:wrong time

http://news.uk.msn.com/uk/articles.aspx?cp-documentid=152755455

QUOTE Regional police chief Muhammad Aslam Tareen, who is leading the investigation, said the men had admitted taking part in the kidnapping. He said the men decided to take the boy and demand a ransom during an opportunistic burglary.

The police chief said the house where the boy was kidnapped was targeted after a door was left open. He said: "It was random. They went to rob a house and when they were on the move they saw the door was open. They entered the house and started searching for valuables and cash. But they couldn't find much so they decided to take the boy and make a demand for ransom. UNQUOTE

Opportunist thieves with oppos waiting in Spain to collect the ransom money.Ill give them their due they were very well organised for a team just looking for a few valuables to cart off.Maybe no family involvement but the rest is a load of BS.
