Mobile services suspended in Karachi over security threat

Karachi: The government of Pakistan on Friday suspended  services of two cellular companies across Karachi amid fears of possible terrorist attack on the eve of Youm-e-Ishq-e-Rassol (S.A.W).

According to security sources, the decision to suspend the services before dawn was taken in order to avoid any possible terror threat.

“Terrorists usually use mobile phones to detonate explosive devices.”
