PAKISTAN-UNREST-KARACHI

To go with story 'Pakistan-unrest-Karachi,FOCUS' by Ashraf Khan In this photograph taken on September 3, 2013 a Pakistani volunteer stands alongside bodies at the mortuary of Edhi Welfare Trust in Karachi where most of the gun shot bodies are brought. Rampant violence has terrorised Karachi, Pakistan's biggest city and economic heartbeat, in recent years, but a recent security crackdown seems to have brought a lull in the bloodshed. Kidnappings for ransom, sectarian attacks and gang warfare have spiralled since 2008, terrifying the city's 18 million inhabitants and prompting tens of thousands of businessmen to flee to the safety of Punjab province.
