#2 Annual Sunni massacre of Shias.

Separately, four people were killed in Mazar-i-Sharif when another blast struck a shrine in the northern city. It was not immediately clear whether Shiites were targeted in that attack.

He added that some people were going to attend the Ashura ceremony when the blast occurred and caused the casualties.

#4 Fatalities from this attack still climbing and will probably hit 60.

They sure seemed to tolerate and encourage it in Iraq.

#9 Well, yes. That's because the label 'political pawns' applies. Iran has little to gain by Shia deaths in Pakistan.
