Easter Mass(acre)

In Pakistan, Taliban's Easter bombing targets Christians; 67 people killed 

 The blast close to a children’s swing set in a public park on Sunday in the eastern city of Lahore killed least 69 people and wounded around 300, It was the third bombing in Pakistan in this month alone, The New York Times writes it was "a reminder that even as the military has cracked down on extremists over the past two years, Islamist groups remain a potent threat." Not sure why they had to say that ... I mean, Timothy McVeigh killed scores of people 21 years ago (for reasons that had nothing to do with religion), so therefore yesterday's massacre isn't related to ideology, either. (Sigh.)
