Question of the Day
Warrants issued in Mumbai attacks
NEW DELHI | India has issued arrest warrants for five Pakistani citizens, including two army officers, for alleged involvement in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
India's Central Bureau of Investigation says Interpol has notified its members of the warrants. The so-called “red corner notices” follow India’s investigation into the role of American David Coleman Headley, a Chicago man who pleaded guilty in the U.S. in March to helping plan the attacks, including scoping targets.
Bombs kill 8 at Sufi site
KARACHI | Two suspected suicide bombers attacked the most beloved Sufi shrine in Pakistan’s largest city Thursday, killing at least eight people, wounding 65 others and sending a stark reminder of the threat posed by Islamist militants to this U.S.-allied nation.
Angry mobs burned tires and torched buses in the aftermath of the bombings in Karachi.
The explosions at the Abdullah Shah Ghazi shrine in Karachi happened Thursday evening, the busiest time of the week for Sufi shrines across the country. Thousands typically visit the Ghazi shrine on Thursdays to pray, distribute food to the poor and toss rose petals on the grave of the saint.
HANOI | Asia’s death toll from vicious rains spiked Thursday to nearly 140 as disaster officials reached previously isolated areas in Vietnam, while the worst flooding in parts of southern China in nearly a half-century killed one person and forced 213,000 villagers to evacuate.
Security forces tried to speed recovery efforts in Indonesia, home to most of the fatalities, with 91 dead, by removing debris from blocked roads and fixing bridges.
