Bus massacre committed in Pakistan, 47 people killed


No one has claimed initially responsibility but considering their past actions in the area the Taliban and other Sunni Muslim extremist groups were suspected to be involved. This was confirmed later. A Jundullah spokesman said it carried out the attack because it considered the victims “kafir” or non-Muslim. Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has condemned the attack and ordered an investigation. Pakistan is about 20% Shia and 70% Sunni. Ismaili Shias, in common with other Shia Muslims revere Ali, son-in-law of the Prophet Mohammed, but they also revere the Imam Ismail who died in 765 AD. Around 100 other people were killed this year in similar attacks.
