Meanwhile, suicide bombers in southwestern Pakistan killed 23 Shiite pilgrims returning from Iran in a separate incident underscoring how fragile security is Pakistan

Just a paragraph in the Karachi airport story. Nothing separate yet.

QUETTA: At least 22 people were killed and several others injured in two coordinated suicide blasts near the Pak-Iran border, Taftan late on Sunday night an high level official confirmed.

Balochistan's Home Secretary Akbar Hussain Durrani told Dawn.com that 10 buses carrying Shia pilgrims had entered Pakistan from Iran.

"There were explosions after the buses were parked outside the hotels where the pilgrims were going to stay over night before they commenced their journey back the following day," Durrani said adding that the blasts were followed by intense firing. He feared the casualties will continue to rise.

Frontier Corps and levies personnel were called in to bring the situation under control. It has been more than right years that Shia pilgrims in Mastung and other parts of Balochistan are targeted by militants.

Presently, no militant organisation has claimed responsibility for the attack.

I had to put the baby to bed. She gets stroppy if Dad doesn't carry her upstairs.

She sulks, goes into a tantrum sometimes. It usually means irritable though.  :laugh:
