Pakistani police today said they had prepared a sketch of the teenaged suicide bomber who blew himself up at the gate of the naval headquarters complex in Islamabad killing two guards and injuring over a dozen others.

The sketch was prepared by law enforcement agencies with the help of witnesses and evidence collected from the site of
yesterday's blast, officials said. The sketch will be released tomorrow, they said.

Two naval policemen were killed when the bomber, aged 17 to 18 years, detonated his explosives when he was stopped by
guards at the gate of the naval headquarters on a key thoroughfare in Islamabad.

The investigation into the attack is underway, police said. The bomber could not speak or understand Urdu and blew himself up in haste when the guards challenged him, officials said.

The attack was the latest in a series of terrorist assaults targeting Pakistani security forces.
