Ad Feedback

Suspected Islamic militants in Pakistan attacked two mosques Friday, killing at least 80 people.

The mosques in the eastern city of Lahore were packed with hundreds of worshippers for Friday prayers.

The militants attacked the Ahmadi, a minority Muslim sect, with grenades, guns, and three suicide bombers. Hostages were also taken.

Friday's attack marked the first time militants have deployed such a coordinated and extensive hit against a religious minority in Pakistan.

Shiite Muslims were usually the target of these militant attacks. Christians and Ahmadis have also faced assaults.

Lahore is Pakistan's second-largest city and important to the country's political and military dealings.
