Triple suicide bombing in Lahore,Pakistan
At least 36 people were killed in triple suicide bombing that targeted a Shiite procession in Lahore on Wednesday night, the largest city in eastern Pakistan, according to a new record set Thursday.
Three suicide bombers on foot blew up the bombs they carried with them amid a dense crowd of thousands of faithful who, after a procession about to break the Ramadan fast.
"Thirty-six people died and 300 were injured, which fears a toll will certainly rise because a large number of injured in a critical condition.
Pakistan has been bleeding since 2007 by a wave of about 400 bombings that have already killed more than 3,600 dead (well: 3.600), mainly committed by suicide bombers Taliban allied with al-Qaeda. They accuse Islamabad's alignment with Washington in its "war against terrorism" since late 2001, but the Shiite minority (less than 20% of Pakistan's population) is also one of their targets.
The first bomb exploded Wednesday in a crowd of faithful who completed a procession to commemorate the death of Imam Ali, fourth Caliph of Islam, cousin and son in law of Prophet Mohammed, and especially revered by Shiites .
They were preparing to break the fast in the month of Ramadan when the first suicide bomber struck. A television station aired a video showing amateur explosion in the heart of the crowd.
Two other bombs exploded near a few minutes later.

I wonder if anyone can find an example of a major religion that has never committed an act of violence. I will admit that some religions such as Christianity and Islam seem much better at killing those of whom they disapprove than others.
