Pakistan Stock Exchange Attack

KARACHI: Pakistani Stock Exchange building in the city of Karachi was attacked by four gunmen on Monday. All of them were killed later.

Two other people were also killed, the military said.

The gunmen attacked the building, which is in a high-security zone that also houses the head offices of many private banks, with grenades and guns, Karachi police chief Ghulam Nabi Memon told Reuters.

“Four attackers have been killed, they had come in a silver Corolla car,” Memon said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Pakistan has long been plagued by Islamist militant violence but attacks have become less frequent in recent years.

The gunmen initially threw a grenade then opened fire on a security post outside the building. The four were killed when security forces posted there responses.

“The situation is still unfolding and management, with the help of security forces, is managing the security and controlling the situation,” the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) said on Twitter.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan calls Osama Bin Laden a Martyr

Pakistan PM Imran Khan

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan called 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden a “shaheed” (martyr) while addressing Pakistan’s National Assembly.

Imran Khan who had earned the nickname ‘Taliban Khan’ for justifying the Taliban movement had moderated his views after becoming the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

On Thursday, however, his statement that Osama bin Laden was a ‘shaheed’ (martyr) shocked many. He made that statement on the floor of Pakistan’s parliament. While discussing events that embarrassed Pakistan, he said the Americans who entered Pakistan’s airspace and killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad. He then quickly corrected ‘maar diya’ (killed) to ‘shaheed kar diya’ (martyred).

That he said it in the National Assembly raised many eyebrows.

Words as said by Imran Khan

Humne War on Terror main US ka saath diya aur jo jillat uthani padi mere mulaq ko…main nahi samajhta ki kabhi bhi koi mulq War on Terror main saath de aur wo bura bhala bhi humain kahen. (US) Afghanistan main kamiyab na hua toh uske liye bhi Pakistan jimmedar hai. Openly. Hamara Pakistan ke liye do bahut hi sharminda vakiya hue…jo hum kabhi bhula nahi sakteEk hua ji Osama bin Laden ko Americans ne Abbottabad main maar diya…shaheed kar diya. Uske baad kya hua? Sari duniya ne hume gaaliyan di…bura bhala humain kaha. Yaani hamara ally hamare mulaq main aake maar raha hai kisi ko aur hamain hi nahi bata raha. 70,000 Pakistani mar chuke hain unki jang ke liye. Yani itni jyada jillat.”

Brazil tests COVID vaccine, without deal to use it if it works

Coronavirus Vaccine

Brazil is testing an experimental coronavirus vaccine, but interim Health Minister Eduardo Pazuello acknowledged Tuesday that the government has yet to strike a deal to get it if it works. Other nations have already secured hundreds of millions of doses of the shot created by Oxford University.

The country’s pandemic response has faced criticism since March when President Jair Bolsonaro started defying social distancing recommendations. Hours before Brazil’s health minister spoke at the congress, a judge ordered Bolsonaro to wear a face mask whenever he is outdoors in the capital of Brasilia.

Pazuello, an army general who made his career in logistics, discussed Brazil’s efforts to buy a vaccine for the virus or acquire the technology to make it. The country’s health regulator, Anvisa, approved human clinical trials for the potential vaccine this month.

Pazuello said a decision on a deal for Brazil to acquire the planned vaccine is expected by the end of the week but will depend on the government’s chief of staff. British researchers started testing the experimental shot in May aiming to immunize more than 10,000 people, including older people and children. The vaccine is one of about a dozen in the early stages of human testing.

Brazil, where coronavirus infections are still on the rise, is the only country other than the United Kingdom testing the Oxford vaccine. The country counts more than 1 million confirmed cases and more than 52,600 fatalities. Clinical trials began in Sao Paulo on Monday and will start in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday. The British Embassy says 5,000 health professionals are being vaccinated.

“We are working directly with the three most promising” vaccines, Pazuello said, naming the Oxford shot, a vaccine under development by American company Moderna and one of the Chinese experiments, which he did not disclose.

Vijay Rangarajan, the British ambassador to Brazil, told The Associated Press he hopes Brazil will be one of the first countries to receive the vaccine if it works.

“However, that will depend on when the country will sign the agreement,” he said by e-mail. “There is already production capacity for the vaccine of 2 billion doses worldwide. But much of the global production is already purchased.”
