Pakistan: eight killed as gunmen attack religious gathering in Karachi - officials

News | 10.02.2014 | 06:02
 

Gunmen on motorcycles Sunday shot dead eight people including an eight-year-old girl at a faith healer's house in the southern Pakistani port city of Karachi, police and doctors said.

At least 12 others were also wounded in the shooting at Baldia Town, a low-income Karachi neighbourhood, as dozens of people waited for their turn to see the faith healer."Six gunmen on three motorcycles stormed into the house and started indiscriminate firing," senior police official Irfan Baloch said.

"At least eight people were killed and 12 others were wounded," Baloch said, adding that the dead included an eight-year-old girl and her father.

The assailants fired 9mm pistols, a weapon used in a spate of targeted killings in the restive city, he added.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.Faith healer Pir Meharban Shah, who provides spiritual healing services, received a bullet wound to his abdomen and said he had not received any threats prior to the attack.

There was a power outage in the area when the attackers entered the house shortly after dark and started firing, he added.

Doctor Aftab Chanarh at Karachi's state-run Civil Hospital confirmed the casualties.

Karachi, Pakistan's largest city with 18 million people, has been plagued by sectarian, ethnic and political violence for years.

Rangers are currently taking part in a joint operation with police in Karachi aimed at cleansing the city of terrorists and other hardcore criminals, including hired killers, gun runners and drug peddlers.

MH17 Disaster and American Hoodlums

...The European restraint on the Boeing issue and the situation in Ukraine in general is explained by two main reasons. First, Europe resists the US pressure concerning the imposition of anti-Russian sanctions... The second reason is even more important. It is connected with the history of Europe. While the first reaction of US media was the topic of «pro-Russian» terrorists and recalling the Lockerby terrorist act, Europeans remembered the assassination archduke Franz-Ferdinand is Sarajevo which triggered the First World War. It may be hard to understand for America, but Europe does its best to avoid the repetition of tragic stories of the past... From this point of view, Americans and their puppets in Kiev behave like hoodlums running amuck with a stricken match around a warehouse full of dynamite loudly calling on others to join the mad race...
