Deaths in renewed violence in Karachi

Gunmen opened fire at a political rally and killed at least nine people while injuring dozens more. The political rally was protesting plans to subdivide the Province of Sindh. Karachi has a long history of violence carried out by the Taliban, criminal elements or because of turf wars between rival political and ethnic groups.

Travellers should exercise extreme caution in Karachi and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they might become violent without notice.
