Pakistan: Daily life under Islam — Part 3

March 4, 2013

At least 45 people have been killed by a bomb explosion in the Pakistani city of Karachi, police say.

The blast in the mainly Shia Muslim area of Abbas Town destroyed several buildings and set others on fire. Some reports spoke of a second explosion.

No group has yet said it planted the bomb, which went off near a mosque as worshippers left evening prayers.

Pakistan’s Shia minority are the target of frequent sectarian attacks from Sunni militant groups.
