A CIA contractor who killed two Pakistani men was released from jail Wednesday after $1.4 million in compensation was paid to their families, according to a lawyer closely connected to the case.

Raymond Davis — who has now left Pakistan, according to a U.S. official not authorized to speak for attribution — had been in jail since January in a case that has strained the always tense relationship between the United States and Pakistan.

The families of two men he killed forgave him, a government official said Wednesday.

Davis’ immediate destination after being released was unclear.

The U.S. official insisted that the release of Davis was a decision made by the Pakistanis, and that there was “no quid pro quo” between Washington and Islamabad. The official refused to comment on whether there was a exchange of so-called “blood money.”
