By Harold Hutchison
Pakistani authorities reported killing four militants suspected of involvement in a bombing that left 89 people dead. The news came as the first funerals for victims of the attack began.
Pakistani authorities also reported rounding up seven other militants, including the suspected mastermind of the attack. The bombings touched off days of protests from Shi’ite Muslims, demanding that the Pakistani government do more to prevent sectarian violence.
Pakistan is the world’s largest Moslem nation, and has a nuclear arsenal with as many as 110 devices.
