KARACHI: Two people were injured in a blast that took place in the Defence area of Karachi on Monday morning, reported Express News.

The blast was reported at a petrol pump in the Khayaban-e-Ittehad area of Defence. It caused a small fire which was soon put out by rescue officials.

There are no reports about the nature of the blast.

Late night on Sunday, reports emerged of terror attacks in Karachi after which cell phone services were abruptly suspended without any prior notification.

Life in Karachi still has not returned to normalcy after a “day of mourning” for the Quetta blasts was observed on Sunday. Protests across the city continue with several roads blocked, while public transport also remains unavailable.

This doesn't make any sense for it to be a targeted attack. Cylinder blast possibly?
