The Honorary Consulate of Somalia, which is situated in the offices of a private pharmaceutical firm in Karachi's Clifton area, was robbed late Friday night, police said.

Senior Superintendent of Police (District South) Saqib Ismail Memon told Dawn that six or seven armed men entered the premises of the consulate late night.

The men took away four laptops, six mobile phones, four LCD screens and at least Rs15,000 in cash, according to a police report.

The police are investigating the matter.

The African nation's honorary consulate was inaugurated last month on March 16, to celebrate 57 years of diplomatic relations between Pakistan and Somalia.
