Karachi, Mar 2: Pakistani police suspect a suicide car bomber carried out an attack today (Mar 2, 2006) that killed an American working at the US consulate in Karachi and four others, less than 48 hours before President George W Bush was due to visit Pakistan.

"According to our initial investigations, it was a suicide attack. The attacker was probably waiting in the parking area and rammed his car into the vehicle carrying US consulate staff," said a senior police investigator, requesting anonymity.

"The car contained a huge quantity of explosive material and that caused the heavy fire."
