Islamabad – The casualty toll in a suicide blast outside a Shiite mosque in the central Pakistani town of Dera Ghazi Khan climbed to 27 dead and more than 50 wounded, police said on Friday.
A suicide bomber targeted a procession of Shiite Muslims Thursday evening when they were returning to the mosque after attending a traditional mourning ceremony.
‘Three blast victims died overnight at the hospital, taking the death toll to 27,’ senior police officer Maqsoodul Hassan said.
“Pakistan has a long history of violence between extremist groups among the majority Sunni and minority Shiite Muslims, although the general population peacefully co-exists despite the sectarian differences.
Thursday’s blast follows a number of suicide and other attacks on Shiite Muslims over the past few months, mostly carried out by militants also believed to have links with Taliban fighters based in the country’s ungoverned tribal region.
Sunni Muslims make up about 80 per cent of Pakistan’s more than 160-million-strong population. Most of the rest are Shiite Muslims.”
