Suicide Bomber Kills At Least 30 in Pakistan

A suicide bombing at a funeral for a policeman in southwestern Pakistan has killed more than 30 people, most of them police officers.

The attack Thursday in Quetta also wounded dozens more. The provincial head of police operations (Fayaz Sumbal) is among several senior officers killed in the attack.

Hundreds of people had gathered to pay respects to an officer gunned down earlier in the day as he traveled through the city with his children,

The bombing is one of the bolder actions in a series of attacks targeting security forces in Pakistan, where Taliban fighters routinely kill police officers.

The latest violence came a day before the annual Eid al-Fitr celebrations in Muslim-majority Pakistan marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
