    The United States on Monday again called for the release of Davis, who was arrested after killing two motorcyclists in broad daylight in Lahore, saying that he acted in legitimate self-defense.

  • EXAMPLE
    I am forty years old, rather tall and I have blue eyes and short black hair. I wear casual clothes as I teach students in a relaxed atmosphere. I enjoy my job because I get to meet and help so many different people from all over the world. During my spare time, I like playing tennis which I play at least three times a week. I also love listening to classical music and I must admit that I spend a lot of money on buying new CDs! I live in a pretty seaside town on the Italian coast. I enjoy eating great Italian food and laughing with the likable people who live here
