"At least 13 people, including five policemen, were today injured in two separate suicide bombings during Eid prayers targeting minority Shias in Pakistan's relatively peaceful southern Sindh province. Four suicide attackers infiltrated Shikarpur district's Khanpur tehsil, 470 kilometres north of Karachi, police said. Two of the attackers targeted an Eid prayer ground where one assailant blew himself up, injuring 10 people, two of whom were policemen. The other attacker fled, they said. Two other suicide bombers targeted a Shia mosque but they were stopped at the entrance by policemen, which led to one of the attackers to blow himself up while the other was arrested." (09/13/16)
