Karachi: Bomb found, defused in Orangi

23 November, 2012

KARACHI: A bomb was found and defused by the bomb disposal sqaud near an Imambargah in Orangi Town Thursday, Geo News reported.

According to the report, the bomb was planted in a ground near an Imambargah located in Pirabad area of Orangi Town.

It is pertinent to mention that a suicide attack on a Moharram procession in Rawalpindi overnight killed 23 people and wounded 62 others in the deadliest assault in the country.

Police in the garrison city of Rawalpindi near the capital said the bomber blew himself up when he was stopped for a security check during the procession.

In Quetta, bombers hit an army vehicle escorting children home from school, killing four soldiers and a woman, police said.

More than 20 people were wounded when the bomb, planted on a motorcycle, was detonated by remote control.

Two people were killed in Pakistan's largest city Karachi when a bomb-laden motorcycle collided with a rickshaw near a Moharram procession.

Countrywide attacks on Wednesday overall killed 35 people.

The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack, another explosion that killed two people near a mosque in Karachi, and attacks targeting security forces in the northwest.
