LAHORE, Pakistan — Militants who attacked a minority sect, killing 93 people in eastern Pakistan, belonged to the Pakistani Taliban and were trained in lawless borderland Waziristan, police said Saturday.

The attacks against the Ahmadi community occurred minutes apart Friday in two neighborhoods in Lahore, Pakistan's second-largest city and a key political, military, and cultural center. Two teams of gunmen, including some in suicide vests, stormed the mosques and sprayed bullets at worshippers while holding off police.

At least two of the seven attackers were captured, while some died in the standoff or by detonating their explosives.
