Suicide bomber kills at least 10 at Shiite mosque in SW Pakistan

A suicide bomber blew himself up in a mosque killing at least 10 Shiite minority Muslims, including six children, and wounded 12 others in a remote southwestern Pakistani town on Thursday, officials said.
The attack took place as Shiites gathered at the mosque to observe the holy month of Moharram in the town of Chalgari in restive Baluchistan, some 170 kilometres (105 miles) southeast of the provincial capital, Quetta.

“At least 10 people were killed and 12 others were wounded after a suicide bomber blew himself up at a Shiite mosque,” provincial home minister Sarfraz Bugti told AFP.

Local administration official Mohammad Waseem confirmed the attack and death toll.

    The atrocity took place in Baluchistan, which Dumpersterstan illegally annexed and occupied shortly after gaining its own independence from the UK.
