Blasts near police stations wound 2 in Pakistan

Pakistani police say small bombs near two police stations in the country's largest city have wounded two people.

Officer Irshad Sehar says Monday's bombings in Karachi were several miles (kilometers) apart. He says they caused minor damage.

Sehar says the apparently coordinated explosions were meant to create fear and panic in the city of 14 million people.

Karachi is a chaotic city where criminal, political and militant violence is common.
