LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) - An official says suicide bombers and gunmen have killed more than 70 people at two mosques of a minority sect in eastern Pakistan.
Lahore Deputy Commissioner Sajjad Bhutta also said more than 80 people were wounded in Friday's attacks.
The assaults in Lahore targeted the Ahmadi community. They are reviled as heretics by mainstream Muslims for their belief that their sect's founder was a savior foretold by the Quran.
