Including, according to another report, a six-year-old child. Note the curious assessment in this report: it was Al-Qaeda, but it wasn’t religious. From VOA News:
Two synchronized explosions near a religious school in Pakistan’s largest city have killed at least eight people and injured dozens of others.
Sindh Province police chief Syed Kamal Shah says the two explosions took place Sunday evening, close to the Jamia Islamia Binori Town religious seminary.
“Two explosions. One was in a motorbike and one was in a bicycle,” he said. “The injured have been evacuated to the hospital.”…
The Jamia Islamia madrasah is a Sunni religious school noted for its modern curriculum, which includes computer classes, and for its international student body.
Sectarian violence between extremists of the Sunni and Shia religious sects is not uncommon in Karachi.
But provincial government adviser Salahuddin Haider says the attack was probably not religious in nature.
Instead, he says, the culprits are likely members of international terror groups, such as al-Qaida, which he says hope to destabilize Pakistan by encouraging religious violence.
“It was an attempt to incite a particular religious group. I am happy that the leaders [of the madrasah] have given a statement saying that, ‘We are being provoked,'” said Mr. Haider.
