Pakistani police on Friday rejected the self-defence claim made by a US official who shot two men in broad daylight in a busy street late last month, saying it was a clear case of murder.

"The police investigation and forensic report show it was not self-defence," Lahore city police chief Aslam Tareen told a news conference.

"His plea has been rejected by police investigators," he said, speaking in English. "He gave no chance to them to survive. That is why we consider it was not self-defence. We have proof it was not self-defence. It was clear murder."
