Man with US passport blows himself up in Pakistan

KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) - A suspected militant who blew himself up in southern Pakistan during a raid by security forces was carrying a United States (US) and a Pakistani passport, authorities said on Saturday. According to a statement by Pakistan's paramilitary Rangers, the dead man has been identified as Saeed Abdul Salam. He detonated an explosive device on Thursday when troops raided his apartment in the port city of Karachi.

The US Embassy could not immediately confirm the development.
