Meanwhile in Karachi… Thirty-four people have been killed in continued violence over the past two days. The total killed in July’s outbreak of violence and unrest is over 300. The Sindh provincial government has now deployed rangers to conduct a targeted operation inside Pakistan’s largest city and main financial hub. Since late June, when the Muttahida Qaumi Movement left a coalition with the Pakistan People’s Party to join the opposition, and political rivalries were exacerbated by elements capitalizing on the upheaval, Karachi has been in the midst of crisis, with an incredible loss of life and a constant state of fear.
