Pakistan: Sunni bomb attack kills 57

July 28, 2013

Two bomb attacks in a busy marketplace in north-west Pakistan have killed 57 people and injured 167, local officials said on Saturday.

The authorities believe the bomb blasts in Parachinar, in the predominantly Shia Kurram tribal area, on Friday night were a co-ordinated sectarian attack by Sunni militants.

Hospital official Shabir Hussain said almost all the dead and wounded were Shias.
