A car bombing possibly launched by a suicide attacker killed four people, including an American diplomat, and wounded 49 outside the US consulate and a luxury hotel in Karachi on Thursday, ahead of a visit to Pakistan by the US president, police said.
President George W. Bush condemned the attack and said "terrorists and killers" would not prevent him from coming to Pakistan this week on the final leg of a tour of South Asia.
"We have lost at least one US citizen in the bombing, a foreign service officer, and I send our country's deepest condolences to that person's loved ones and family," Bush said in neighboring in India. "Terrorists and killers are not going to prevent me from going to Pakistan."
