Militants Kill 3 Soldiers in Karachi


Karachi: Militants riding on motorbikes opened fire on an army vehicle killing three soldiers and wounding another outside a mosque in Pakistan’s largest city Karachi, officials said on Friday.

Major general Bilal Akbar, the director-general of Pakistan’s paramilitary Rangers, says a fourth Ranger was wounded in Friday’s attack.

Akbar says the Rangers were inside a vehicle that was parked near the mosque when the assailants opened fire. In comments to local media, he says the attackers likely sought to target the mosque or a nearby seminary.

Karachi is capital of Pakistan’s southern Sindh province and has been the site of frequent militant attacks in the past.
