A top Pakistani policeman renowned for his tough stance on criminals and Islamist militants was killed by a Taliban car bomb in the volatile southern city of Karachi on Thursday, police said. The Taliban described Superintendent Chaudhry Aslam's death as a "huge victory". Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the bombing. Three other officers were killed alongside Aslam, said senior police officer Raja Umar Khattab, after a car packed with explosives rammed his vehicle. Chain-smoking Aslam, dubbed "Pakistan's toughest cop" by local media and a celebrated figure in a country where citizens decry authorities' failure to crack down on criminals and militants, has been targeted by the Taliban before.
