Pakistan: Grenade attack kills several, including children
August 15, 2021
At least four children died after a grenade attack on a truck in Karachi occurred late on Saturday. The onslaught is being viewed as a way of sabotaging Pakistan's independence day commemorations.
The death toll from an overnight grenade attack on a truck in Karachi rose to 12 on Sunday, with children among the victims.
The incident occurred late Saturday evening when a mini-truck carrying more than 20 members of an extended family was hit by a grenade in the Pakistan's biggest city. The family was returning from a wedding reception.
"At least 12 people were killed in the attack," local police officer Fida Hussain said.
Another eight people were wounded and it is feared that the death toll may still rise.
