More Than 40 Killed After Gunmen Attack Bus In Karachi

Pakistani officials say at least 43 members of a minority Shi’ite Muslim sect were killed when gunmen opened fire on their bus in Pakistan’s southern port city of Karachi.

Authorities said the attackers first fired at the bus from outside, then went aboard and began shooting survivors in the head.

Provincial police chief Ghulam Haider Jamali said the bus was en route to a community center for Ismaili Shi’ite Muslims when at least six gunmen stopped the vehicle and began killing the passengers.

He said the gunmen fled on three motorcycles after the May 13 attack.
