Pakistan: suicide bomber kills 13

(Lahore)  A Taliban suicide bomber yesterday targeted a protest rally in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore, killing at least 13 people.

The attack occurred when owners of medical shops were demonstrating against amendments to a law governing drug sales in Punjab province. Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a Pakistani Taliban group, said it had carried out the attack. It said it was in response to Pakistani military operations. The blast was captured by a TV station drone.

So let me get this right, in response to the Pakistani government targeting them, Islamic terrorists murdered normal people protesting against the same government.
