On May 13, gunmen stormed a bus in Karachi, killing 45 members of the Ismaili community in one of the deadliest incidents in Pakistan last year.
The attack was swiftly claimed by IS, marking the first time the militants, who have seized control of large areas of Iraq and Syria, said they were behind an attack in Pakistan. But investigators believe the attack may have been carried out by the militant group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) as it seeks to expand its international influence.
