Karachi residents' bombproof cars

Karachi's wealthiest residents are choosing bombproof cars and employing security guards as violent crime levels soar in the Pakistani city.

Karachi is Pakistan's commercial capital, but it is also said to be the most lawless city, known for daily shootings, kidnappings and extortion.

More than 2,000 people have been killed in the first nine months of this year.

But while millions worry about their safety, the city's elite is not taking any chances and turning to costly measures to protect themselves from bullets and bombs.
