    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.
