Attackers involved in Shershah shooting still threatening the shopkeepers of the market, MQM statement says.

The attackers involved in the shooting are still threatening the shopkeepers of the Shershah market, according to a statement issued by the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).

Interior Minister Rehman Malik telephoned the MQM Chief Altaf Hussain to discuss the firing incident in the Shershah market of Karachi.
