Suicide bomber kills 50 at mosque in Pakistan's northwest - The Long War Journal

Utter silence from the world's left on murders like this....strange, so strange.
A suicide bomber killed more than 50 people in the latest attack on a religious gathering in Pakistan.

The suicide bomber detonated his vest outside of the Waali Mosque in the frontier city of Darra Adam Khel in northwestern Pakistan. The bomber killed the Pakistanis as they were leaving the mosque after Friday prayers, ensuring the maximum number of casualties.

Fifty people have been killed and more than 100 more have been wounded, some critically, Pakistani officials told Geo News.

The Taliban and allied terror groups have been behind the attacks on religious sites in Pakistan. Minority groups such Ahmadis, a sect of Islam that is illegal in Pakistan, and Christians, have been targeted, as well as the majority Barelvis, who are hated by terror groups for practicing Sufism and their opposition to the Taliban. Sufi shrines have been a major target of the attacks.
