Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information on the Union Texas Petroleum (UTP) murders. On November 12, 1997, four UTP employees were on their way to work in Karachi, Pakistan. As their station wagon crossed a bridge leading to the UTP office building, two gunmen jumped out of a red Honda Civic and fired into the car. All four U.S. employees, as well as their Pakistani driver, were killed in the attack.
The attack may have been retaliation for the conviction in the U.S. federal court of Mir Aimal Kansi just two days earlier. Kansi was responsible for the 1993 murder of two CIA employees outside the agency’s headquarters in Langley, Virginia.
