A Saudi diplomat was shot dead in the Pakistani city of Karachi when unidentified gunmen fired at a car belonging to the kingdom's embassy, police said on Monday. "The consulate employee died of multiple bullet wounds on the spot. The attackers fled on the motorbike," The Dawn newspaper quoted Sindh police chief Fayaaz Leghari, as saying.
The motive for the attack was not clear.
Monday's shooting was carried out by two men on a motorbike and appeared to be linked to last week's grenade attack on the mission, which caused some damage but no injuries.
