Sectarian Terror Continues: 4 killed in blast at Pakistan shrine
Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) — Four people were killed early Monday morning when a bomb exploded at one of Pakistan’s largest Sufi shrines, authorities said. At least 15 others were wounded.
Authorities, at one point, put the death toll at six. However, police official Raja Ishfaq said that officers at the scene mistook two unconscious people as deceased. Those two were in critical condition, he said.
The bomb exploded at the Baba Farid shrine in Pakpattan shortly after dawn prayers, when crowds of morning worshipers usually leave the site, police said.
