At least 13 people died and nearly 200 were wounded in Pakistan during violent protests on Friday condemning a US-made anti-Islam film, defying a government call for only peaceful demonstrations, officials said. Nine people were killed in Karachi, the country's largest city, and four in the northwestern city of Peshawar, hospital officials said. The combined total of wounded in Karachi, Peshawar and in the capital Islamabad was 195. Doctor Mohammad Shafqat of Karachi's Jinnah hospital told AFP that it had received four dead bodies and 65 people with injuries, with more wounded arriving. Doctor Mohammad Ayub at the Civil hospital, said his medics had received five dead bodies, including that of a police officer, and at least 40 injured. The policeman was killed in an exchange of fire with protesters in Karachi, the country's largest city, police official Mohammad Shakeel said. Scuffles broke out when protesters tried to march towards the US consulate, throwing stones at police and trying to remove shipping containers that blocked the road, police said. Officers fired off tear gas shells and fired into the air to disperse the crowd, but three policemen were wounded by gunfire from an unknown direction, Shakeel said. In the northwestern city of Peshawar, the Lady Reading Hospital said it had three dead, including a TV station employee who was shot when protesters set alight and ransacked a cinema.
