IS claims deadly attack on Ismaili community in Karachi

KARACHI: The Islamic State group on Wednesday claimed responsibility for an attack by gunmen on a bus that killed at least 43 Ismaili community members in Pakistan’s biggest city Karachi.

“Thanks be to Allah, 43 apostates were killed and around 30 were wounded in an attack carried out by Islamic State soldiers on a bus transporting Shiite Ismaili infidels in the city of Karachi,” the extremist group said in a statement posted on jihadist Twitter accounts.

According to AFP, it was the first official claim of responsibility by the IS leadership of an attack in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region.

IS, which has seized control of large parts of Syria and Iraq, announced in January the creation of a branch in what it called “Khorasan province”, encompassing Afghanistan, Pakistan and parts of surrounding countries.
