Three more killed in Karachi as violence enters fifth day

KARACHI, Wednesday, 03 Feb, 2010: A man was killed in Karachi’s Gulshan-i-Iqbal Town whereas two people were killed in the city’s Orangi Town and Qasba Colony areas. Meanwhile, a man wounded three days ago during the violence also succumbed to his injuries.

On Tuesday, at least 13 people were killed in incidents of firing in different areas of Karachi in the backdrop of the Pakistan People’s Party’s main coalition partner staging a walk out from the Sindh Assembly.

Meanwhile, the Sindh government has called upon holding a high-level meeting to review the province’s law and order situation, particularly in connection with the rising incidents of target killings in Karachi.

On Tuesday, Sindh Home Minister Zulfiqar Mirza said he would call in the army to “play its due role and take over Karachi, as a Swat-like law and order situation is developing in the provincial capital.”
