Pakistan: 4 killed in attack on Karachi stock exchange

Four people were killed after gunmen stormed the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) compound in the southern city of Karachi in an attack claimed by ethnic Baloch separatists.

Four gunmen attacked the stock exchange building at approximately 10am (05:00 GMT) on Monday, firing indiscriminately as they charged past a security checkpoint at the compound’s entrance.

Two attackers were killed at that checkpoint, security officials said, while the other two were shot dead while attempting to gain entrance to the building.

The dead included three private security guards and a police officer, hospital officials said. At least seven people were wounded in the attack.
