A slim majority of Puerto Ricans sought to change ties with the United States and become the 51st American state in a nonbinding referendum that would require final approval from Congress.
Mr. Hyder, who was investigating cases against terrorists in the troubled northwest, was killed along with two of his guards and two bystanders, said Mr. Iqbal.
The bomber detonated his explosives as Hilal Hyder's vehicle was passing through a crowded market in the city of Peshawar, said police officer Asif Iqbal.
