On the morning of March 8, 1995, a white van carried passengers to work at the U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan. At a busy intersection, a yellow taxi swerved in front of the van, forcing it to stop while another car prevented it from moving. Masked terrorists armed with automatic rifles quickly approached and opened fire, spraying the van with bullets and shattering its windows. Two American consulate employees were killed and one was injured in the attack.
The Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information that brings to justice those responsible for this attack.
