Pakistan to impose curfew in Karachi

A partial curfew will be imposed in parts of Pakistan's financial hub of Karachi to facilitate operations aimed at ending a surge in ethnic and political violence that has claimed nearly 30 lives, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said yesterday.
Malik said a "semi-curfew" would be imposed in parts of Karachi to facilitate operations against those involved in a spate of targeted killings.
He was speaking to reporters at the Karachi airport after chairing a series of meetings to finalise a plan of action to end violence in the southern port city.
