Suicide Bomber Kills at Least 10 at Shiite Mosque in Pakistan

At least 25 wounded

A suicide bomber has attacked a Shi'ite Muslim mosque and religious seminary in northwestern Pakistan, killing at least 10 people and wounding at least 25 others.

Police officials say the attacker first opened fire on guards at the complex in Peshawar, and then detonated his explosives amid the worshippers who had gathered for Friday prayers.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but radical Sunni Muslims who consider Shi'ites to be heretics have stepped up attacks against the minority Shi'ites in recent years.
