3 killed, over 20 injured in navy bus blast in Pakistan
At least three people were killed and over 20 others injured in a bomb attack on a navy bus that occurred early Thursday morning in Pakistan's southern port city of Karachi, reported local Urdu TV channel Duniya.
According to the local media reports, the blast took place at about 8:12 a.m. local time in the Karsaz area of the city when a Pakistan navy bus carrying an estimated 35 people on board was attacked by a bomb while on its way to office, Xinhua reported.
A destroyed motorcycle was found on the blast site and local media reports said the bomb could have been fixed to it.
The nature of the blast is yet to be confirmed.
Rescue team rushed to the site shortly after the blast was reported and the injured people have been shifted to nearby hospital in the city.
Thursday morning's blast is the third of its kind that happened in the city over the last three days. On Tuesday morning, two navy buses carrying staff officials to work place were blasted in two different locations in the city, leaving 4 people including a military lady doctor killed and 56 others injured.
Pakistan Taliban claimed the responsibility for the previous two attacks on the navy buses.
