Shiites Bury 32 Victims of Suicide Attack

March 05, 2004|From Times Wire Reports

Tens of thousands of Shiite Muslims marched to a martyrs' burial ground in Quetta, Pakistan, to lay to rest 32 victims of a suicide attack. Police said they were gathering evidence pointing to Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a militant group with suspected links to the Al Qaeda network.

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is also believed to be responsible for an attack last July 4 on a Shiite mosque in Quetta that killed 50. The death toll in Tuesday's attack rose to 44 -- including six policemen and two attackers -- after one more victim died.
