KARACHI, Pakistan: Two bombs minutes apart ripped through a market in southern Pakistan on Tuesday, killing at least six people and wounding 15 others, police said.

The blasts also damaged several shops in the Nazim Abad neighborhood of the port city of Karachi, senior police officer Asim Qaimkhani said.

He said the dead and wounded had been transported to hospitals, where some were listed in critical condition.

Karachi is the capital of southern Sindh province.

No one claimed responsibility, but Karachi has a history of sectarian, political and ethnic violence.

Karachi has also been the scene of several bomb and gun attacks in recent years blamed on Pakistan's branch of the Taliban, some members of which are believed to be hiding there.
