Pak arrests 2 suspects in US consulate attack
Karachi, May 4: Pakistani police have arrested two suspects believed to have played key roles in a suicide bomb attack that killed a US diplomat and three others outside the US consulate in Karachi in March, an official today said.
''We have arrested two people, but we cannot disclose their identities at the moment,'' Salahuddin Haider, a spokesman for the provincial Sindh government, told Reuters. ''But I can tell that both of them are key suspects in the US consulate blast case.''
On March 2, on the eve of a visit by President George W Bush to Pakistan, a suicide attacker rammed a white Toyota Corolla packed with explosives into the diplomats' vehicle metres from the US Consulate's main entrance, setting off a blast that also wounded 52 people.
