Suicide Bomber Targets Shia Worshipers In Pakistan, At Least 23 Dead

DAWN (Pakistan), TIMES OF INDIA (India), BBC NEWS (UK)

ISLAMABAD - A Taliban suicide bomber killed at least 23 people Wednesday night at a Shia Muslim procession in the city of Rawalpindi, Pakistani police said.

According to BBC News, the bomber targeted marchers as they approached a mosque near the city centre. More than 60 were reported injured.

Police say they attempted to stop and search the bomber, who then blew himself up. The force of the blast ripped a hole in the wall of the mosque.

People had gathered to mark the holy month of Muharram in the Shia tradition.

 

 

This latest attack came hours after two bombs killed at least two other people at a gathering of Shias in Karachi, and a remote-control blast left at least five dead in Quetta, writes Dawn.

This is the deadliest assault in the country in the past five months as leaders from the Muslim world are gathering for the D8 summit in Islamabad on Thursday, adds Times Of India.

Iran, Indonesia and Turkey are among the countries joining the summit of mainly Muslim nations to discuss global trade and investment.
