Debrah Lobo was driving home from the dental college where she worked as a vice principal. Gunmen intercepted her and shot her in the arm and chin. The men claimed to be militants and left leaflets in her car saying she was targeted for being an American.
According to The Guardian, the English version of the pamphlet read: “Oh crusaders, we are the lions of Dualat al Islamia, the falcons of the caliph. Today we killed this Kansas lady Lobo, we shall lie and wait and ambush you and kill you wherever you may be and confined and besiege you in America and then god willing … we will burn America.”
The leaflet also said the attack was revenge for killing of five suspected militants in Karachi the day before.
55 year old Lobo has been living in Pakistan since 1998. Lobo moved to Pakistan with the mission to serve the community and help improve the healthcare system. She has been hospitalized and is now recovering.
