Twin bombs kill at least 39 at meeting of radical Pakistani Sunnis

Two bombs ripped through a gathering of Sunni Muslim radicals in a central Pakistani city before dawn, killing at least 39 people and wounding more than 100 as the country grappled with a new upsurge of sectarian violence. The blasts, apparently a car bomb and motorcycle bomb, at 4:30 am (2330 GMT Wednesday) targetted around 1,000 Sunnis from an outlawed group who had gathered in Multan to mark the first anniversary of the assassination of their leader Azam Tariq. The suspected sectarian attack comes six days after 30 worshippers from the rival Shiite minority were killed by a suicide bomber as they prayed in the eastern city of Sialkot. Police had feared a bloody revenge attack. Group Profile
