More than 35 violent deaths in less than 24 hours in the largest city of Pakistan

The violence still bleeding to Karachi. The death toll rises to 35 in 24 hours in the southern city of Pakistan. The numbers of clashes and killings continue rising despite the peace imposed by the Government a few days ago, demonstrating his inability to curb violence in the most populous city (17 million) and Pakistan's economic capital.

"35 people have died in violent incidents over the past 24 hours, especially in shootouts," said provincial government official, Sharfuddin Memon. These deaths raise the number to 50 since last Saturday and are attributed to political rivalries, ethnic and mafias. Moreover, the dead since the beginning of July are now over 200.

The clashes opposed the partisans of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Awami National Party (ANP), which represents the Pashtun minority.
