Explosion In Storied Building Kills 3 In Pakistan, 15 Injured

A powerful explosion ripped through a multistory building earlier today in Pakistan leaving 3 dead and 15 others injured. The incident happened in Pakistan’s southern port city of Karachi and rescuers are still working to find any other survivors.

The police failed to determine the cause of the explosion immediately. They say the explosion appears to be  accidental. Reports say an ignition of a cooking gas canister likely caused the explosion.

An ambulance service spokesperson, Edhi Saad said some people were still trapped under the rubble. Sajid Sadozai, a senior police officer in Karachi confirmed the death of the three people. TV footage showed rescuers digging through the remains of the collapsed building.

Karachi is a sprawling metropolis and is also Pakistan’s largest city and is home to over 20 million people. It has a long history of frequent political, ethnic, and other forms of violence due to its many inhabitants.

There used to be attacks and killings in Pakistan but they have lessened in recent years due to a city-wide operation launched seven years ago. The preliminary Rangers force targeted criminal gangs and political parties aligned with them.

On Tuesday, an improvised explosive device wounded at least five people near a bus terminal in Karachi according to local media.
