Pak president’s security chief killed in suicide attack

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari’s security chief was killed in a suspected suicide bomb attack in the volatile port city of Karachi on Wednesday as he stopped hisarmoured vehicle to buy some fruit, police said. A senior officer in Pakistan’s financial capital told Reuters that Bilal Shaikh - Zardari’s close aide - was killed along with two other people in a prosperous area of eastern Karachi.

About a dozen others were wounded. ‘It seems that the suicide attacker walked up to Bilal Shaikh’s vehicle and blew himself up outside the front passenger seat of the vehicle where Shaikh was seated,’ said police officer Raja Umar Khattab. Pakistan has been hit by a spate of bombings since PM Nawaz Sharif was sworn in last month.
