Deadly blasts hit Sufi shrine in Karachi

Pakistani officials say at least nine people have been killed in a double explosion at a prominent Sufi Muslim shrine in Karachi.

The country has recently seen an upsurge in attacks by Islamic extremists on Muslims whose practice they condemn as impure such as Shias and Sufis.
