KARACHI, Pakistan, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- An apparent crime wave left eight more people dead in Karachi this weekend, Pakistani authorities said.
The slayings occurred Saturday and appeared to be the result of street violence rather than terrorism.
Police told the Pakistani newspaper The Nation some of the victims appeared to be the victims of muggers or criminal kidnappers. Others were gunned down for unknown reasons that did not appear political or religious.
One man died in a shootout among drug dealers, and a factory owner was bushwhacked by two gunmen on a motorcycle as he walked to his car.
At least three of the fatal attacks were carried out by assailants on motorcycles, but their motives appeared to be sectarian. There were no reports of arrests in any of the slayings.
