karachi-crises Karachi cries for help as 60 people have been killed in incessant firing.

In latest incidents, three buses were attacked in three different areas, killing 13 people and injuring 30. This brought Thursday s death toll to 36, and the three-day s to over 60.

Six people were killed and nine injured when a bus was attacked on Banaras Bridge. Another four were killed and six injured in firing on another bus near the Board s office. Earlier, three people were killed in firing on a bus near Orangi Town, one of the worst-affected areas.

Three people, inluding a girl child, were killed in Kasba Colony. Firing continues intermittently in Kasba Colony, injuring at least 12 people.

The area people have started moving out of the area in view of diminishing hope of improvement in the situation. Armoured police vehicles have moved dozens of families out of the area. On the other hand, the Sindh IGP said Karachi’s situation couldn’t be improved by pressing a button.

Meanwhile, gas and petrol stations have been shut in many areas, creating inconvenience to the residents. People were seen queuing up at the few stations open in the city.
