30+ KILLED, MANY INJURED AS TERRORIST ATTACK ROCKS PAKISTANI MARKET

Over 30 people were killed and 50 injured after a blast hit a market in Pakistan. Conflicting reports say that either a suicide bomber carried out the attack or the explosive device was hidden in vegetables.
Three children and 28 mourners are believed to be among the 31 victims, according to local Geo TV. The network says that another 33 people were injured in the suicide blast on Friday after the attacker went to the market on a motorcycle.

Meanwhile, AFP citing local officials gives a different account, saying that the improvised explosive device was hidden in a carton of vegetables. The agency also put the death toll at 31 and said that 50 more people were injured, with 17 in critical condition.

The attack on a market was labeled “terrorist” by Federal Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari, who also blamed US failures in neighboring Afghanistan for the blast.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope this uptick in violence, coupled with the attack against the Chinese Consulate in Pakistan, is not a harbinger of worse times ahead for the Pakistani people.
