KARACHI: Two separate explosions in Karachi on Monday evening injured at least two people, DawnNews reported.

A loud explosion was heard near the city’s Share Faisal. Rescue and security services rushed to the scene immediately after the incident.

Initial police reports suggest the explosion took place at the same venue where protesters were staging a sit-in against killings of 84 Hazara Shias in Quetta.

Police sources said the blast has created a large crater beneath the FTC Bridge on one of the busiest roads of the financial capital of the country. However, there are no reports of casualties yet.

Meanwhile, media reports said that another blast in Orangi Town’s Peerabad area has injured at least two people.

Earlier during the day, eight people lost their lives in different incidents of violence in the city.

This is a developing story and will be updated as reports come in
