Residents in Pakistan's Karachicall for the government to take action a day after a bomb blast kills at least 45 people.  The residents sift through the debris of their burned-out neighborhood, the morning after a bomb killed at least 45 people in Pakistan's commercial capital.

A suspected suicide bomber attacked Shi'ite Muslims as they were leaving a mosque on Sunday. Pakistan has seen fewer suicide attacks on government and military targets over the past year.

A campaign led by the al Qaeda-linked Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and allied Pakistani anti-Shi'ite groups to rip open sectarian fault lines in the city of 18 million.

Residents of the city say they are under siege by Lashkar-e-Jhangvi death squads who seem to act with impunity.
