ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Interior Rehman Malik has said that mobile phone services were suspended in Karachi on Friday morning due to terrorism threat and security concerns.

He said a meeting was held in this regard with all the stakeholders, adding that nefarious designs of terrorists were foiled as not a single incident of target killings took place on Friday.

The minister also appreciated performance of the law enforcement agencies in this regard.

Cellular services were suspended from 11 am to 6 pm in Pakistan’s commercial capital.

Militants in Pakistan often detonate bombs using cellular phones and the government has implemented similar service suspensions in the past.
