Two Policemen Killed at U.S. Pakistan Consulate

A gunman shot dead two policemen guarding the U.S. consulate in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi Friday and wounded six other local people, police said. Karachi police inspector Malik Ishaq said the attacker shot and wounded a policeman with a pistol and then snatched his sub-machinegun, which he used to shoot the others before being arrested. Officials said the man, who was later arrested, had told police he was an Afghan. Terry White, a U.S. embassy spokesman in Islamabad, said no consulate staff had been hurt. “The attacker came in front of the police post and started firing,” Ishaq told Reuters. Provincial police chief Syed Kamal Shah said the wounded were four policemen, a paramilitary ranger and a Pakistani civilian. Police said the assailant tried to flee through a park opposite the consulate after exhausting ammunition, but was apprehended and arrested by paramilitary officers. Full Story
