KARACHI: A suspected suicide bomber blew himself up in a Karachi neighbourhood on Friday during a search operation by the paramilitary Rangers, an official said.
There was no immediate report of any other damage.
Security officials said the blast happened when the paramilitary rangers had surrounded an apartment complex in Karachi’s Gulistan-e-Johar Block 12 residential area.
According to reports, the suspect, who appeared to be a foreigner, locked himself up in the kitchen and detonated his bomb as Rangers tried to search his apartment.
Officials say they also arrested a woman and four children from the apartment.
