A bomb blast has killed at least two people and wounded several others in Pakistan's southern port city of Karachi.
The bomb went off outside a cigarette shop in the Khurram Abad neighborhood of Karachi, Pakistan's biggest city.
Local officials said three other shops and several vehicles were also damaged in the explosion.
Officials said a preliminary investigation showed that the explosive was planted on a motorcycle and detonated with a timer.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
Karachi has had a long history of political, sectarian, and ethnic violence.
