Bombing at Shiite mosque in Pakistan injures four


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - A bomb exploded Sunday at a Shiite mosque in the eastern city of Lahore, injuring four people, officials said.
The blast happened at the Husainia Hall mosque in the ancient walled part of the city, said Mohammed Abid, an official at the Lahore police control room.

"So far we only know it was a bomb blast and injured are being taken to hospital," he told The Associated Press by phone.

The bomb went off at the mosque at 5:40 p.m. after prayers, said Raja Basharat Illahi, law minister for Punjab province.

He said four people were injured, none seriously.

"It seems to be a small bomb blast and there appear to be not many casualties," he said.
