32 People Killed in Orakzai Suicide Bombing in Pakistan

Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s minorities have denounced the killing of the members of the Hindu community in the Orakzai blast. The deadly bombing coincided with an audacious terrorist attack on China’s diplomatic mission in Karachi.

Local administration officials said the bomb explosion took place in the Shia-dominated Kalaya area of Orakzai district which in the past had been wrecked by sectarian violence but has become stable of late.
