The blast happened late Thursday night in the Saddar district. “According to initial findings in the investigation, the bomb was placed in a motorcycle,” said a Karachi police spokesman. It is not immediately clear what the target of the attack was.
Several vehicles were damaged, including one from the Coast Guard. The fatal victim was a passer-by.
Two weeks ago, another suicide attack took place in Karachi that cost four lives. Three of the victims were Chinese: the attack targeted a van belonging to the staff of a Beijing cultural program at Karachi University. The attack was claimed by a separatist movement from Baluchistan.
