Egyptian UN worker shot in Karachi
KARACHI: Gunmen wounded an Egyptian working for the United Nations Children’s Fund when they fired on his vehicle in Pakistan’s largest city on Sunday, police said. The motive for the attack was not entirely clear, but police said it may have been a robbery gone wrong. On Sunday three international UN workers were leaving a restaurant in Karachi’s wealthy Clifton suburb when gunmen approached them, said Fayyaz Laghari, the provincial Inspector General. As they drove off, the gunmen pursued them and opened fire, he said. An Egyptian working for the United Nations Children’s Fund was shot in the shoulder, he said.
