Workers affiliated with the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) clashed with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) political party activists near the intersection of Napier Road and Siddiq Wahab road in central Karachi and also near a district registration office in northern Karachi. A heavy security presence remained on the scene in both locations following the skirmishes, although police officers did not intervene in the clashes. Intermittent skirmishes between PPP and PTI members have been ongoing in Karachi since local elections took place on 15 January.
