ISLAMABAD, March 4 (Xinhua) -- Five people succumbed to their injuries on Monday following Sunday night's twin bomb blasts in a densely populated Shia residential area in Pakistan's southern port city of Karachi, bringing the death toll to 45, officials said.
Syed Hashim Raza Zaidi, Commissioner of Karachi, said that unknown militants parked an explosive-laden car outside a residential building in Abbas Town in Karachi, the capital of Sindh province.
He said the car bomb blast that was triggered off by a remote- control device targeted a group of Shia Muslims coming out of a mosque after evening prayer.
