Pakistan Authorities Arrest 200 In Connection With String Of Political Murders
May 20, 2010
Pakistan (ChattahBox) – Pakistani authorities have arrested two hundred people in connection with 23 murders that have occurred in the city of Karachi this week, all of which appear to be politically motivated.
A government official placed the number of murder victims at 23, but media sources in the area only reported 17.
All the names of those killed have not been released, but they appear to have been political workers in the region, half of which were a part of the ANP [the ruling party of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa].
The ANP have blamed the Muttahida Quami Movement [MQM] for the killings, but they have denied any involvement.
