From Times Wire Reports

Four bombs rocked the city of Karachi, killing one person and injuring 12, as a strike to protest a water shortage began.

One bomb, hidden in a helmet that a police patrol picked up off the street, exploded and killed an officer.

Rioters chanting anti-government slogans set dozens of vehicles ablaze. Parts of Pakistan are facing water shortages because of a two-year drought.
