KARACHI: A blast went off at a Shia Muslim procession on Karachi's M.A. Jinnah on Monday but there was no immediate word on the cause or if it had inflicted casualties, police said.
“We are trying to ascertain whether it was a time bomb or a suicide attack, but it is a terrorist attack,” senior police official Abdul Wahid Khan told Reuters from the site, adding at least several people had been wounded.
Television pictures showed a big cloud of smoke over the scene and television reporters said angry worshippers attacked a media vehicle.
Witnesses said there were several casualties.
The police was urging civilians to move away from the site of the blast.
The procession continued to move forward despite the explosion.
