Pakistan: Car bomb kills 26 in Lahore

(Lahore) Whilst the Islamic world continues to go into a meltdown over the installation of metal detectors at a mosque in Jerusalem, the death toll in the aftermath of terror attacks carried out by Muslims in Muslims continues to rise.

Today in Pakistan, 26 people, including nine policemen, were killed while 58 others were injured in a bombing attack in the city of Lahour.

The attack which was targeted at policemen was carried out just before 4pm local time and so would have struck at rush hour. The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility, stating that a "suicide attacker" had used a motorcycle bomb to target police officials.

Punjab government spokesman Malik Mohammad Ahmed said the attack had occurred at an old vegetable market in the Kot Lakhpat neighbourhood in Lahore.

And to think that the use of metal detectors reduces the chance of attacks such as this taking place.
