MULTAN, Pakistan (AP) — Two bombs planted in a car and motorcycle exploded at a gathering of Sunni Muslim radicals in central Pakistan before dawn Thursday, killing at least 39 people and wounding about 100 others. Police suspected it was a sectarian attack.
About 2,000 angry Sunnis gathered outside a hospital where victims of the explosions in the city of Multan were taken, shouting “Shiites are infidels!” and slogans against the government, witnesses said.
The bombings came less than a week after a suicide attack left 31 dead at a Shiite mosque in an eastern city.
About 3,000 people had gathered in a residential area of Multan to mark the anniversary of the death of the leader of the outlawed Sunni radical group Sipah-e-Sahaba killed in an attack last year.
A car bomb exploded near the venue as people were starting to disperse after the overnight meeting, and two minutes later a second bomb attached to a motorcycle went off, deputy city police chief Arshad Hameed said.
“It seems to be an act of sectarian terrorism, but we are still investigating,” he told The Associated Press….
A leader of the group blamed Thursday’s bombings on radical Shiite Muslims.
“This is the worst kind of terrorism, and everybody knows who is behind it,” said Ahmad Ludhianvi, the head of Sipah-e-Sahaba.
