KARACHI, Pakistan, May 18 (UPI Asia) -- At least 12 people, including two policemen, were shot dead in Pakistan's largest city over 24 hours in an orgy of violence that has continued unabated for weeks, police said Friday.
Unidentified killers fatally shot three people in a drive-by shooting. The three victims had traveled from Pakistan's western province of Balochistan to claim the dead bodies of two of other relatives who had been killed in the city just days earlier.
The deceased were identified as Imran, Abdul Basit and Shoaib.
Two bullet-riddled and tortured bodies found in another part of the city were of Mitho, 22, and Amir, 25, police said.
On Thursday night unidentified men shot at three policemen on patrol. Two of them died on the spot.
Four people, including a child, were shot dead in a residential district. The decomposed body of an unidentified girl was also found in the city. Police said the girl had been dead at least ten days.
