Pakistan official: 17 killed in attack on Shiites

Published: 12.30.12, 09:44 / Israel News

A government official says a suicide bomber driving a vehicle packed with explosives rammed into a bus carrying Shiite Muslim pilgrims in southwest Pakistan, killing 17 people.


Tufail Ahmed says over 20 people were wounded in the attack Sunday in Baluchistan province's Mastung district. The blast completely destroyed the bus that was hit and damaged a second bus carrying Shiites that was close by. Pakistan has experienced a spike in killings over the last year by radical Sunni Muslims targeting Shiites who they consider heretics, especially in Baluchistan. (AP)
