GUNMEN ATTACK KARACHI STOCK EXCHANGE BUILDING IN PAKISTAN

At least seven people have been killed after gunmen stormed the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) in the southern city of Karachi, firing indiscriminately as they entered the building complex, rescue officials say.

Four attackers stormed the building at 10 am (05:00 GMT) Monday morning as trading began, carrying hand grenades and firing automatic rifles.

All four attackers had been killed by police and security forces responding to the attack, said Faisal Edhi, head of the Edhi charity and ambulance service which serves the city.

"The attackers had hand grenades with them. Two of them were killed at the gate, and two were killed further inside the building complex," said Edhi, whose office is located opposite the PSX in Karachi's main commercial district.
