At least five people have been killed after gunmen attacked the Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi,
Four people were killed after gunmen stormed the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) compound in the southern city of Karachi in an attack claimed by ethnic Baloch separatists that has set off an international row after Pakistan blamed India for supporting the attackers.
Four gunmen attempted to attack the stock exchange building at approximately 10am (05:00 GMT) on Monday morning, firing indiscriminately as they dismounted from their car and charged towards a security barrier at the compound's entrance.
Two attackers were killed at that barrier, security officials said, while the other two were shot dead in an exchange of fire with security officials in the compound's parking lot.
Those killed by the gunmen included three private security guards and a police officer, hospital officials said. At least seven people were wounded in the attack.
"The attackers had hand grenades with them," said Faisal Edhi, head of the Edhi charity and ambulance service, from the scene of the attack shortly after it was ended.
"We were hearing explosions going off."
