KARACHI, Nov 3 (Reuters) Shots were heard in several neighbourhoods of the southern Pakistani city of Karachi, after President Pervez Musharraf invoked emergency powers today.

There is strong backing for opposition leader Benazir Bhutto in Karachi and Sindh province, and the most intense firing was heard in the Lyari neighbourhood, where support for Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party is high, witnesses said.
