Wouldn't it help to know who all the Karachi murder victims are in order for police (and the country) to get an idea of why each was killed and have a larger picture of what is happening?

"protesting residents came out on the streets." Is this something new? Seriously.

Same old news everyday with different figures, sometimes 4, sometimes 10 sometimes the number reaches more than 20. Where in the world we're living in?
