A bomb hidden in a motorcycle killed 11 people in a poor district of Karachi, Pakistan (Reuters)
A bomb hidden in a motorcycle exploded killing at least 11 people, mostly aged between six and 15, at a football match in the Pakistani city of Karachi.
The remote-controlled device was detonated late at night at the end of a local tournament at a pitch in the rundown Lyari neighbourhood.
No group has claimed responsibility for the blast that injured at least 24 people.
The bomb went off as a packed stadium was watching the prize-giving ceremony at the end of the last match of a tournament held throughout the fasting month of Ramadan.
“When the match ended, we came out and as soon as we came out there was a blast,” Ameer Ali, who was injured in the blast, told Reuters.
