Bomb Kills Mourner At Militant’s Funeral

A bomb exploded Sunday during the funeral for a member of a militant ethnic group, killing one mourner and injuring two others.

Members of a breakaway faction of the Mohajir Qaumi Movement, or People’s Refugee Movement, were mourning faction leader Mohammed Ahmed, who was killed Saturday in a drive-by shooting in the southern port of Karachi.

The bomb exploded in Ahmed’s front yard. One person was killed and two injured, movement officials and police said.

The Mohajir Qaumi Movement, which represents Urdu-speaking Muslim immigrants from neighboring India, split in 1992 after an internal power struggle. Violence between the two factions has led to thousands of deaths.
