3 children killed in Karachi madrassa blast


KARACHI: A blast killed three boys aged between 10 and 12 at a religious seminary in the port city on Monday, police said.
The attack occurred in the impoverished western district of Orangi, which has a militant presence and a history of sectarian violence. “The explosion, which targeted a religious seminary of Sunnis, killed at least three male students and wounded six others,” a senior local police official, Javed Alam Odho told AFP. He said the police were trying to ascertain whether it was a planted bomb or a hand grenade that had been thrown. A senior doctor at the Abbasi Shaheed hospital, Parshotum Rathore, confirmed the number of deaths and said those who died in the attack were between 10 and 12-years-old.
