At least five people have died after shots were fired at the Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi, according to rescue officials on Monday.

Policemen and security officials are among those confirmed dead, according to Mohammad Azeem, an official with the Edhi rescue center, a prominent local charity service.

Rescue and paramilitary security personnel are at the scene in an ongoing operation, Azeem said.
Video shows security and barricades outside the stock exchange in Karachi, according to CNN affiliate Geo News.
Abid Ali, director of the Pakistan Stock Exchange, said in a media briefing on Geo News that four attackers entered the compound and started firing but were killed by security forces.
"There were four attackers who came from the parking lot, they threw a grenade at the main entrance of the KSE (stock exchange) and then started firing indiscriminately," Ali said.
"The attackers were wearing uniform that looked like police uniforms, all four have been killed and the situation is currently under control."
The Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) group has claimed responsibility for the attack, according to Maj. Gen. Omar Ahmed Bukhari, the director general of the Pakistan Rangers Sindh, a paramilitary force under command of the country's military.
"We are investigating further, to find out who these people are," Bukhari said.

Surprised the one guy got as far as he did. Carrying way too much shit to move, and stands out in the open struggling to get the magazine in his AK. Just dumb luck really.
