Pakistan militant suspect dies in blast at home

Police say a suspected militant has died in a blast at his home in south Pakistan.

Senior police Tanveer Alam says at least one person was also wounded when the blast ripped through the house on the outskirts of the southern port city of Karachi on Saturday.

He says the victims, who lived in the rented house, were apparently handling explosives at the time. Alam gave no further details and identity of the men was not immediately known.

Karachi is the capital of southern Sindh province and police often arrest members of outlawed domestic militant groups there.
