Two gunmen opened fire inside a bakery in Pakistan's southern port city of Karachi on Monday, killing a Sunni Muslim cleric before fleeing on a motorcycle, police said. Qari Habibur Rahman Saeedi was buying food after leading morning prayers at a nearby mosque when he was shot in Karachi's southern Liyari district, police inspector Bahauddin Babar said. The gunmen escaped on a motorcycle driven by an accomplice, Babar said. The cleric died on the way to a hospital. No one claimed responsibility for the killing, but Babar suspected it was the latest in a string of sectarian attacks.
