35 dead, 175 wounded in Pakistan shrine attack

Two suicide bombers struck a popular Muslim shrine in Pakistan’s second largest city late Thursday night, killing 35 people and wounding 175 others in the second major attack in Lahore in a month, the city’s top official said.

The bombers struck as thousands of people were visiting the Data Darbar shrine, where a famous Sufi saint is buried. Muslims in Pakistan visit shrines and mosques in large numbers on Thursday and Friday nights.
