Twin Bombings Kill 7 in Karachi, Pakistan

Twin terrorist bombings killed at least seven people and wounded 18 Friday in a predominantly Shi'ite neighborhood of Karachi, Pakistan Friday.

Police say the bombs were hidden on two motorcycles parked near a tea stand in the Ancholi section.

No one has claimed responsibility and police say it is not clear who was targeted because both Shi'ites and Sunnis live in the area.

Karachi is one of Pakistan's most violent cities, plagued with ethnic battles, murders, and kidnappings.
