At least one child was killed and dozens of people were wounded in a drive-by bomb attack at a Shi'ite mosque in Karachi, police said.

Police said two men on a motorcycle lobbed the bomb as women and children sat outside the mosque in the Pakistani port city's densely populated Liaquatabad district.

Radical Sunni Islamists periodically target mosques frequented by minority Shi'ites, whom they see as infidels. Shi'ites make up about a fifth of Pakistan's mainly Sunni population of around 180 million.
