Gunmen wound Egyptian UNICEF worker in Karachi

KARACHI - Gunmen wounded an Egyptian working for the United Nations Children's Fund when they fired on his vehicle in Pakistan's largest city on Sunday, police said.
The motive for the attack was not entirely clear, but police said it may have been a robbery gone wrong.The shooting followed an attack in July when two men working on the World Health Organization's polio campaign were wounded. Taliban fighters oppose the campaign and many religious leaders say it is a Western conspiracy to spy on or sterilize Muslims.
On Sunday three international UN workers were leaving a restaurant in Karachi's wealthy Clifton suburb when gunmen approached them, said Fayyaz Laghari, the provincial Inspector General.
