TERRORISM

Two Suicide Bombers Rock Lahore

A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up in a market and a busy residential area of Lahore, Pakistan Friday, killing at least 43 people and injuring nearly 100. Authorities say the attackers were targeting military vehicles—they killed six army personnel. Lahore has seemingly been under the constant threat of attack for a year now, ever since six people were killed in an ambush of the Sri Lankan cricket team. Since then, there have been at least five deadly attacks in public places. The most recent came on Monday when the Taliban killed 13 people in an assault on a building used by Pakistani intelligence services and promised to set loose 3,000 suicide bombers unless Pakistan ceased all operations against the group. No one has yet claimed responsibility for Friday’s bombing.
