Suicide bomber wounds several at Pak mosque

A suicide bomber ran past guards at a minority Shia mosque in eastern Pakistan then blew himself up yesterday, wounding several worshippers, officials said.
The attack appeared to be the latest in a string by Sunni extremists against other Muslims they consider infidels.
It took place in Sargodha city, which is in Punjab, Pakistan's most populous province and its political heartland.
The region is increasingly coming under attack by al-Qaeda and Taliban militants that have logistics and training centres close to the Afghan border several hundred miles (kilometers) away.
Government official Zulfikar Shah said guards at the mosque tried to stop the suicide attacker, but he evaded them.
