President Bush says he will travel to Pakistan on Friday, despite a suicide attack there Thursday that killed an American diplomat and three others.
In India Thursday, he said "terrorists and killers" will not prevent him from making the trip to Islamabad. Mr. Bush - who heads to Islamabad late in the day - said it is important that he and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf discuss continuing the fight against terrorists.
The deadly bombing occurred outside the U.S. Consulate in Karachi, more than 15-hundred kilometers from Islamabad.
A car laden with explosives rammed the vehicle carrying a U.S. foreign service officer, blowing the car apart and injuring more than 50 people.
Also, demonstrators plan to take to the streets of Pakistan on Friday to protest Mr. Bush's visit and denounce recent cartoons first printed in Europe that depict the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist.
The attack in Karachi was one of several near that U.S. Consulate. A car bombing there in 2002 killed 14 people.
