KARACHI -UNS: The paramilitary force and police jointly conducted a targeted operation in different areas of the city and apprehended a dozen suspects including foreigners.

They were taken to undisclosed location for interrogation.

The sweltering metropolis is Pakistan’s largest and wealthiest city. It accounts for half of national revenues and hosts the stock exchange, central bank and a giant port.
The military’s crackdown in Karachi started late in 2013, when the murder rate soared and mutilated bodies were dumped in alleyways daily.
