"Gunmen shot and killed a pioneering Pakistani activist in Karachi who helped bring services like sewer and water to the city’s poorest neighborhoods, a police official said Thursday. The killing was a sign of the escalating chaos that has gripped Pakistan’s largest city. Perween Rahman, the director of the Orangi Pilot Project, was on her way home Wednesday night when she was shot and killed by gunmen on a motorcycle, said senior police officer Javed Odho."
