Karachi Gunman Had 'Duty To Kill'
A man arrested after a shooting attack killed two police officers outside the U.S. Consulate in Karachi on Friday had a note in his pocket outlining his religious duty to kill the “protectors of infidels.” Deputy superintendent of police Gul Hammid Sammo told the Associated Press the man also had a sketched map of the consulate compound’s external security arrangements. “I am going to kill the police officers who are protecting the infidels,” the letter said according to Sammo. “This is my religious obligation.” The suspect has been identified as Pakistani Zulfigar Ali, 30. When arrested he screamed at police, urging them to kill him, Sammo said. Six others, including one civilian, were injured in the attack. No Americans and none of the staff inside the compound at the time of the shooting were injured. Ali told police that he acted alone in the raid but authorities expect the involvement of other gunmen. Full Story
