Five killed in clashes in Karachi

.- At least five people died in the last 24 hours in different clashes in the Pakistani city of Karachi, Efe said one police source. The shootings occurred in different districts of Pakistan's most populous city, according to the source, which ruled that the victims are linked to political parties. During the month of March in the capital of southern Sindh province were more than 105 killings in violence motivated by ethnic and political disputes, according to police data collected by Efe.

Pakistan's financial capital has long been a growing city population in which ethnicity moyahir (urdu speakers who arrived from India after the partition of the subcontinent in 1947), Sindhi (native), Punjabi, Pashto and Balochi struggle for power. Criminal groups are often sponsored by different political stands that often represent different ethnic groups.

The development of a new national census, the last dating from 1998 - is raising blisters on Sindh by fear of the different communities to be under-represented.
