Karachi violence sees at least 39 people killed

At least 39 people have been killed in political and gang violence in the Pakistani city of Karachi in the past two days.

The violence escalated following the death of ex-MP Waja Karim Dad and 12 other people on Wednesday.

Police say many of the dead were kidnapped first, and some appear to show signs of torture.
