Four heavily armed militants attacked the busy Pakistan Stock Exchange on Monday morning, killing four security guards and a police sub-inspector before being shot dead in an exchange of fire, media reports said.

"Four attackers have been killed, they had come in a silver Corolla auto", Memon said.

Gunfire was heard following the attack as the police moved in to cordon off the area.

Local television stations showed police in full body armour surrounding the building outside the high walled compound of the stock exchange.

"The situation is still unfolding and management, with the help of security forces, is managing the security and controlling the situation", the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) said on Twitter.

Four suspects have been killed, police said.

Bill Gates: US 'not even close' to doing enough to fight pandemic
Gates said he remained hopeful that the USA will "step up" and help get the tools - particularly a vaccine - out around the globe. The major hurdle, in his view, won't be building or distributing a vaccine - it will be making sure folks consider it.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

According to reports, four suspected terrorists stormed the Karachi stock exchange.

"They made their way from our parking area and opened fire on everyone", said Abid Ali Habib, Director Pakistan Stock Exchange.

It was not immediately clear if there are more attackers at large.

This is a developing story that is being updated as the situation evolves.
