(AFP, Dec. 5) That same day in Peshawar, a car-bomb attack on a crowded market near a Shi’ite mosque killed at least 27, including a 12-year-old boy, and wounded 100. The mosque and adjacent buildings were wrecked. The bazaar was crowded with shoppers in the run-up to the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha. (AlJazeera, Dec. 6)
