Triple Suicide Bomb Blasts Kill 43 in Pakistan

Terror struck Pakistan's cultural hub of Lahore as a pair of suicide bombers attacked a famous Sufi shrine packed with thousands of worshippers, killing at least 43 people, including women and children, and injuring 180 others in the latest in a slew of attacks across the country.

The blasts occurred late last night in quick succession at the Data Darbar shrine of Sufi saint Syed Abul Hassan bin Usman bin Ali al-Hajweri revered by millions of people, accordion to Indian Express.

It was the second assault on a religious site in the city in recent months – an assault on members of the minority Ahmadi sect in late May killed 94 people – and underscored how extremists are determined to bring their bloody campaign to the heart of Punjab, Pakistan's most populous and powerful province, The Guardian reports.
