20 bodies of drowning victims recovered from Pakistan beaches
At least 20 bodies have been recovered from two separate beaches in southern Pakistan, where 23 people had drowned after they went swimming into the sea despite warnings about strong currents.
According to Dawn, twelve bodies were recovered from Clifton Beach in Karachi on Wednesday night after which the rescue operation was suspended owing to the dark whereas an additional six bodies were recovered after 6 am on Thursday morning. Moreover, two bodies were also recovered from Hawks Bay today.
The incident occurred as thousands of people gathered at the city beaches on the second day of Eid despite the administration-imposed ban under Section 144 on entering or bathing in the sea, the report said.
Meanwhile, rescue workers are scouring the sea in search of the remaining three bodies.
