Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has sought report from Sindh province government on the fierce clashes between supporters of two political parties in this port city that left about 17 people dead.

Gilani spoke to the chief minister of Sindh province, Syed Qaim Ali Shah late last night and asked him to give a report on the recent incidents of killing in Karachi and on the situation arising out of these incidents, reports said.

At least 12 persons have been killed and over a dozen injured in fierce clashes between supporters of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Awami National Party (ANP) here, weeks after political violence claimed over 40 lives.

Tensions erupted between workers of the two parties following a clash between their supporters late on Friday night.
