Armed men target Pakistani minister

Armed men shot and wounded Pakistan's religious affairs minister, Hamid Saeed Kazmi, in an attack in the capital Islamabad on Wednesday that killed his driver, police said.

Kazmi has been critical of armed Islamist groups in Pakistan.

"Gunmen sprayed bullets on the minister's car," said a police officer who identified himself as Qasim.

Local television news channels showed images of Kazmi with what appeared to be a leg wound.

"Mr Kazmi is wounded but stable," said Khalid Hussain, a doctor at Islamabad's Federal Government Services Hospital.
