13 killed, 47 injured in attack on police bus



At least 13 persons were killed and 47 others were injured on Thursday morning when a police bus was targeted by a suicide bomber in Karachi, private news channels reported.

The victims mainly included policemen.

The attack came early in the morning near Razzaqabad police training college in Shah Latif Town of Karachi.

SSP Malir Rao Anwaar told that evidences indicate that a suicide bomber had rammed the explosives-laden vehicle into the police van carrying more than 50 personnel who were on their way to discharge their duties at Bilawal House. However, police is investigating the matter to ascertain the facts.

According to initial reports, 25 to 30 kilograms of explosives were used in the attack.

A CID official has refuted the claim that the bombing was a suicidal one as, he said, no body parts were found from the site to support the notion.

Rescue teams reached the site of attack whereas the victims were shifted to nearby hospitals.

Medical sources confirmed 11 casualties while 10 of the 47 wounded police officers were reported to be in a critical condition.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Security forces cordoned off the area and sealed the blast site.

President Mamnoon Hussain, Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Malik Baloch, Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain and the Majlis Wahdat-i-Muslimeen (MWM) condemned the attack.

Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon has said that the attack is a reaction of targeted action against terrorists in the metropolis.
