Two people, including a lieutenant commander of Pakistan Navy, were shot dead by gunmen Wednesday in the country's port city of Karachi.

Both were returning from Eid prayers when they were attacked by motorcycle-borne assailants in sector 11-B of the city, Geo TV said.

One of them died on the spot while the other succumbed to his injuries in a hospital.

Karachi has witnessed a spurt of target killings in recent months. The government has vowed to end the violence although it seems to be spiralling out of control.
