Pakistani Taleban claims bombing

At LEAST six people have been killed and 90 wounded after a bombing at a Shiite religious procession in north-western Pakistan yesterday which the Taleban has claimed responsibility for.

Thirty have died in five attacks on Shiites claimed by the Pakistani Taleban in the past five days while 100 were wounded in the run-up to the Ashoura holiday, which marks the 7th-century death of the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson.
