Ⅱ.阅读理解

A suicide bomber blew up a bus parked outside a Kara-chi hotel yesterday in a thunderous explosion that killed 11 French engineers, their Pakistani driver and a passer-by.Twenty-three people were wounded.

Pakistan's government denounced (公开指责) the ex-plosion as an act of terrorism aimed at foreigners, and sus-picion (嫌疑) fell on militant Islamic groups angered by Pa-kistani President General Pervez Musharraf's support for the US-led united war in neighboring Afghanistan.

There was no evidence linking the attack directly to the al-Qaida terrorist network of Osama bin Laden, but many of the militant Islamic groups in Pakistan are sympa-thetic to al-Qaida and some have links to the organization, according to the Associated Press.

Musharraf promised to fight back.

“We feel this act of international terrorism has to be met with full force. My government has the complete de-termination of meeting this threat,” he said.

“I would like the international community to under-stand our home environment resulting from our cooperation against international terrorism,” Musharraf said.

French President Jacques Chirac condemned the attack and sent his newly appointed defense minister to Pakistan.

The 11 French killed in the bombing were engineers working at the Karachi seaport for

a state-owned French marine construction company, the French Foreign Ministry said in Paris. They were part of a team building a subma-rine Pakistan bought from France.

The bus was parked outside the Sheraton Hotel when the bomb went off — obviously in a second vehicle driven by the bomber, tearing a large crater(弹坑) in the road and destroying nearby vehicles.

“We have recovered a burnt body from a car,”said Sindh provincial police chief Sayed Kamal Shah, referring to the suicide bomber and his vehicle. “The sound was so loud I think you could have heard it from six miles away,” said Munir Sheikh, a police officer who was actually pres-ent at the event and saw the explosion. The explosion caused 14 deaths, including the bomber.
