Afghanistan: Funerals held for victims of Paktia mosque suicide attack

A mass funeral was held for the 30 victims of a suicide bomb attack on a Shia mosque in Gardez, Paktia Province, on Saturday. Family members laid to rest their loved ones in a common grave. «The people of Paktia should stay united,» said one attendee. He went on to ask «Why a suicide bomber detonates himself among our worshipers? Why we don't have security in our country?» Thirty people... Еще were killed and at least 80 injured in the attack, which followed Friday prayers. Two burka-clad men opened fire on worshippers, before one was shot dead by security forces. The other reportedly blew himself up. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
