ISLAMABAD, (Xinhua): At least eight people including a child were killed and 14 others injured on Sunday evening when some unknown assailants attacked a Sufi Muslim religious place in Pakistan’s southern port city of Karachi, local media and officials said.

Police Superintendent Irfan Baloch said that some unknown gunmen riding on motorcycles stormed a religious place in the Baldia Town of Karachi, killing eight and injuring 14 others.

At least six assailants wearing helmets to hide their identity hurled hand grenades at pilgrims present in the building before opening indiscriminate fire at them.

Police and rescue teams rushed to the site and shifted the bodies and injured to the Civil Hospital of the city.

Rescuers said that some women and children were among the injured.

An eyewitness said three motorcyclists remained outside the building while three others entered the building and opened fire.

At the time of the attack, over 50 men, women and children were present inside the building.

The attackers managed to flee from the site after the attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
