4 terrorists killed in Pakistan's Karachi: police
ISLAMABAD (Xinhua) - Police in the Pakistani port city of Karachi said on Monday that four terrorists were killed in an encounter during a police raid operation.
Those killed belonged to the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and were behind attacks on army officers and the Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was critically injured in the TTP-claimed attack in the northwestern Swat valley in October 2012.
Police officer Rao Anwar said that the terrorists, who opened fire at the police when they raided on a compound, were killed in Sadaf Society area of Karachi in exchange of firing.
Those killed included Khurshid, cousin of the TTP Chief Maulvi Fazlullah. TTP is involved in most of the terrorist attacks in Pakistan.
Khurshid was wanted to the police in several cases, including attacks on police in Karachi, the officer said.
The police said the law enforcement agencies have launched search operations in Karachi for a suspect of the Saturday's attack on a senior politician. Enditem
