    Lahore suicide attacks kill 13, injure 50


    LAHORE: A teenage suicide bomber blew himself up near a religious procession of Shiite Muslims in the Pakistani city of Lahore on Tuesday, killing at least 13 people and wounding more than 50, officials said.

    Militants linked to al Qaeda and Taliban have attacked such religious gatherings in the past as part of their bloody campaign to create chaos and topple the US-backed Pakistani government.

    “A 13-year-old boy detonated explosives as policemen tried to check him at a cordon near the procession,” Lahore police chief Aslam Tarin told Reuters.

    Hospital officials said 13 people, including three policemen and a woman, were killed and around 52 people were wounded.

    Shiites stage large rallies on the streets to mark Chehlum or Arba’in, the end of their 40-day religious mourning period for Imam Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), who was killed during a battle in A.D. 680 in Karbala, a city in modern-day Iraq.

    Militants linked to al Qaeda and Taliban deem Shiites as heretics.

    Militants have unleashed a wave of suicide and bomb attacks across Pakistan. The attacks on religious minorities are part of their wider campaign to destabilise Pakistan.

    A group affiliated with the Pakistan Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

    “We will continue such attacks in future,” Shakirullah Shakir, a spokesman for Fidayeen-e-Islam militant group told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location. – Reuters

    It means literally, if you sow a Babul (Acacia, gum) tree, how can you expect to reap mangoes.

    Essentially, 'you reap what you sow'.

    I hate to say it, but this is the kind of blast where the death toll spiralls out of control after a time.

    God bless the Shias of Pakistan.
