Lyari has become a byword in Karachi, and the rest of the country, for places to avoid. The carnage that shook the area on Wednesday exemplified this sentiment. More than 55 people were injured and 16 were killed when rival gangs began armed clashes using heavy weaponry, including Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs). School children and women were shot dead on the streets. The police arrived belatedly and were ineffectual. Protests by Lyari residents began yesterday outside the Karachi Press Club, with many holding keys to their locked houses in their hands saying they won’t go home until the Sindh government brings some semblance of law and order to the area. The battle between loyalists of the Baba Ladla and Uzair Baloch gangs was the city’s single bloodiest incident of gang violence in recent years.

LARKANA: A long march of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), arranged for the recovery of missing persons, reached Larkana, Sindh on Wednesday after 27 days.
The 1500-km-long march, led by VBMP Chairman Mama Abdul Qadeer Baloch, Farzana Majeed (sister of Zakir Majeed) and the relatives of other missing persons, left Karachi for Islamabad on December 13, 2013.
The long march is aimed at drawing the attention of the authorities and international human rights organisations towards the ‘human rights violations’ in Balochistan.
