PESHAWAR, Pakistan - A suicide bomber on a motorcycle killed a top Pakistani police officer and one of his guards on Friday in the city of Peshawar, police said.

Additional Inspector General Ashraf Noor was leaving his home for work when the bomber rammed into his vehicle, city police chief Tahir Khan said.

Noor's vehicle was engulfed in flame, killing him on the spot, Khan said. One of his five guards died in hospital, the police chief said.
