ISLAMABAD, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- At least six policemen were killed and another was injured Saturday night in two different terrorist attacks in Pakistan's southern port city of Karachi, local media reported.

The two incidents took place within half an hour in the Landhi area of Karachi when some unknown terrorists attacked two police vehicles at different locations.

In first incident, the miscreants hurled hand grenades at a police mobile, killing three policemen on duty outside the house of a politician.

A few minutes later, some unknown gunmen opened fire at another police vehicle in the same area, killing three policemen on the spot and wounding an officer in charge.

In both attacks, miscreants managed to flee the scenes after the assaults.

According to earlier reports, it was a single attack in which six policemen were killed, but police said later that there was two different attacks.

Police and rescuers rushed the bodies and the injured to the Jinnah Hospital of the city.

No group has claimed responsibly for the attack yet.

Earlier in the day, at least 10 people including a police inspector were killed and several others injured in different firing and target killing incidents in the city.
