10 killed, 30 injured as blast hits Karachi, Pakistan

ISLAMABAD, May 11 - At least ten people were killed and 30 others injured when a blast went off near a polling station in Pakistan's southern port city of Karachi on Saturday morning, reported local Urdu TV channel Dawn.

Some of the injured were in critical condition, said sources with Jinnah Hospital in the city, which admitted the blast victims, adding a child was among the killed.

The blast also damaged six vehicles and eight shops, said local media.

According to the media reports, the blast took place at about 10:00 a.m. local time when a group of supporters of Awami National Party (ANP), a local political party which mainly represents the interests of the Pashtun from the country's northwest region, were gathering together near a polling station in the Quaidabad area of Karachi.

They gathered there to vote for ANP candidate Aman Ullah, said the reports.

Aman Ullah remained safe in the blast.

The bomb was hidden inside a car parked nearby the polling station and was detonated through a time device, said police.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

Pakistan Taliban had threatened to attack the people voting for ANP as the party is against the militant group.

Saturday's blast in Karachi is the most deadly attack so far reported during the election day in the country.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
