Car bomb blast kills 37, injures 141 in Pakistan

KARACHI — A car bomb exploded outside a mosque on Sunday, killing 37 people and wounding another 141 in a Shi’ite Muslim neighborhood in the southern Pakistan city of Karachi — the third mass casualty attack on the minority sect in the country this year.

No one has taken responsibility for the bombing, but Shi’ite Muslims have been increasingly targeted by Sunni militant groups in Karachi — Pakistan’s economic hub and site of years of political, sectarian, and ethnic violence, as well as other parts of the country.
