A senior Pakistan navy officer was shot dead and his Swedish wife wounded in Karachi on Wednesday, police said.
The couple were shot on a busy thoroughfare near the National Stadium, a cricket venue, in the city's eastern district.
"Two gunmen riding a motorbike intercepted Captain Naveed's vehicle and opened fire, killing him on the spot," local police official Tahir Naveed told AFP.
He had only one name for the dead officer.
Naveed's wife sustained a bullet injury in the attack and has been taken to a naval hospital, he added.
Naveed taught at the Karachi campus of the National University of Sciences and Technology.
A naval intelligence official also confirmed the killing. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
