ISLAMABAD — A bomb at a minority Shi'ite mosque wounded several worshippers Sunday in eastern Pakistan.

The attack appeared to be the latest in a string by Sunni extremists against other Mulsims they consider infidels.

The blast took place at a mosque in Sargodha city, which is in Punjab, the country's most populous province, said Tasneem Qureshi, junior minister for the interior. He said several people had been wounded, but could not give an exact figure.
