Supporters of a powerful political party in Pakistan's southern city of Karachi fired shots at the office of a television channel on Monday before ransacking the building, police said.

The protesters belonged to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), senior superintendent of police Saqib Ismail said. Media reported they were angry about a lack of coverage of a hunger strike.

"MQM workers fired shots at the ARY (News) office, ransacked the premises and set fire to a police mobile," he said.
