The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) “vehemently” slammed Tuesday a terror attack on the Pakistani stock exchange building in the southern port city of Karachi.
Secretary-General Yousef A. Al-Othaimeen reiterated the organization’s “firm position in rejecting terrorism, extremism and violence in all forms and manifestations,” in a statement that highlighted the OIC’s support for Pakistan in fight against terrorism.
At least seven people were killed, including all four attackers, two Pakistan Stock Exchange security guards and a policeman, Karachi police chief Ghulam Nabi Memon and Maj. Gen. Omer Bukhari, head of the Rangers paramilitary force, said at a news conference Monday.
Seven others were injured in the attack, two critically.
The outlawed Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) claimed responsibility for the attack which was the latest in a series targeting security forces and government installations.
