BY MAHMUD HAMSAR The car bomb attacks in Karachi and the provincial capital of Quetta, on Saturday, left at least six dead and wounded more than 100 others, the Interior Ministry said.
Two gunmen were also killed and at least 10 others wounded in the attack, which was carried out in a remote area near the provincial headquarters of the provincial government.
A car bomb targeted the headquarters of Pakistan’s provincial government in Karachi on Saturday.
The interior ministry said security forces were deployed to secure the area.
A police spokesman said an inquiry has been launched and no group is in custody.
The government has not named the target of the attack.
The attack comes as police work to identify the perpetrators of a deadly attack on the city’s bus station in March.
A similar attack on a bus station was carried by suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba militants in June last year.
Police say the blast at the bus station on Saturday was carried with heavy explosives.
