Suicide bomber outside mosque kills 19, wounds 45 in Pakistan northwest
[REUTERS] A jacket wallah killed 19 mostly Sunni Mohammedans and maimed 45 on Friday in a crowded market outside a mosque in Pakistain's restive northwestern town of Hangu, police and officials said.

Hangu, part of Pakistain's border region with Afghanistan, has been racked by sectarian violence between Sunni and Shi'ite tribes.

It is just a few km from Parachinar, which has a significant Shi'ite population against whom hardline Sunni cut-thoat groups have launched attacks for years.

"Most of the dead were coming out of a mosque in the marketplace after Friday prayers when the bomb went off," senior police officer Imtiaz Shah said.

No group has grabbed credit so far.

#5  Yes, heaven knows how many times one forgets to call the mosque to find out what time services are...

#4  actually there are two moxques and a courtyard and misc stuff between them and the bomb went off after Friday Sunni prayers were over but while Shiite prayers were still finishing up

the bomber may have simply gotten the time wrong or the bomber may have targeted Sunnis who were anti taliban
or there are other possibilities

#2  I've run out of popcorn on this one.

Have we any idea what all of the killing in Pakistain supposed to accomplish? Who is on whose side and do we have a program? Gosh I wish these guys would wear jerseys with numbers.

What are the "sides" in this one? Who is carrying water for who?

OR Gasp! is this really an example of what Islam will evolve to when they take over the world?
