Spree of sadistic target-killing.

death toll rises to 22 in yesterday city riots

Again, the violence has enveloped the streets of Karachi; the politico-ethnic target killing claimed 22 lives. The riots have burst out in the various parts of the metropolis.

These incidents of target killing started late night Tuesday were continued Wednesday as 22 more people were gunned down in the city by unknown armed men. The target killing incidents occurred in Landhi, Korangi, North Nazimabad, Moosa Colony, Abul Hassan Isphahani Road, Model Colony, Orangi Town, Shah Faisal Colony, Saddar, Quaidabad and other areas. The incidents of target killings triggered related violence, which included the torching of buses, forceful closure of markets, the burning of roadside stalls as well as the targeting of police personnel. The entire city was in the grip of tension, with public transport disappearing from the roads by early evening, as reports of the violence began to spread.

The city is under great threat and bloodshed; such incidents are very much frequent in the streets of Karachi, as a couple of months before city was enduring the same scenario. And our so called government has become a silent spectator, feels their selves liberated after sharing some typical sentences of misery. What a government believes on sermons rather than actions.
