Gunmen on a motorcycle attacked activist Sabeen Mahmud late last Friday in Karachi, as she was leaving her cafe, where she held art exhibitions and talks. She had just hosted a discussion on disappearances in Baluchistan.

Police say their only witness is Mahmud’s mother, who was with her and was wounded. Investigators suspect the killers had a back-up team of two men on a motorcycle and police are poring over CCTV footage.
