Grim deathtoll in wake of Taliban’s funeral sneak attack
- 36+ killed in a suicide bombing by the Pakistani Taliban source
» And at a funeral, no less. A teenager reportedly detonated himself while pretending to attend a Pakistani funeral service, which was being held by an anti-Taliban group in the country’s northwest. The funeral’s proximity to the Taliban and al-Qaeda’s safe havens within Pakistan made it a natural target. Our deepest condolences to all those killed in this most horrible attack.
