Pakistani security officials have claimed arresting a TTP operative who is said to be the mastermind of the suicide attack which targeted former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s rally in Karachi in October 2007.
Shouting anti-Taliban slogans and
beating their chests, thousands of mourners on Saturday attended the
collective burial procession of 21 people killed in the twin
bombings in Pakistan`s commercial hub as the death toll from
the assault rose to 33.
Pakistan`s commercial hub of Karachi
was in the grip of violence as at least 23 people were killed
in a blast in a militant safe house and several incidents of
firing by unidentified gunmen following the killing of MQM
activist, authorities said on Friday.
