ISLAMABAD - The death toll from two
blasts at a Sufi shrine in eastern Pakistan on Sunday has risen
to 30, a rescue service official told Reuters. Police said the
blasts were caused by bombs.
"We have shifted 30 bodies and about 100 wounded to
different hospitals," said Natiq Hayat, head of the city rescue
service in Dera Ghazi Khan.
Al Qaeda-linked Taliban militants abhor the unorthodox Sufi
interpretation of Islam and have attacked Sufi targets in
Pakistan several times.
