Consumerist: The Murders People Do In The Name Of God!
At least 33 people dead, over 80 injured in third major bombing to strike Peshawar in a week.
At least 33 people were killed and over 80 injured after a powerful explosion ripped through Peshawar’s Qissa Khawani Bazaar on Sunday morning—the third such bombing in the city in the past week.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the blast, saying those involved in the deaths of innocents were devoid of humanity and religion. He also said that such barbaric acts of terrorism could not deter the government’s resolve to ensure peace in the country.
Much earlier Egypt was the target!
Sunday’s attack was the third major bombing to strike Peshawar and its suburbs in the past seven days.
Last Sunday a twin suicide attack at a Peshawar church (see above) killed 82 people, triggering countrywide protests by the Christian community and members of the civil society demanding better protection for Pakistan’s minorities.
On Friday, a powerful bomb tore through a bus carrying government employees on the edge of Peshawar, killing 18 people.
