Suicide attack on Afghan Shi’ite shrine kills up to 20

KABUL | Tue Dec 6, 2011 3:18am EST

(Reuters) – A suicide bomber attacked a Shi’ite Muslim shrine in central Kabul on Tuesday where a crowd of hundreds had gathered for the festival of Ashura, killing up to 20 people in what appeared to be an unprecedented sectarian attack.

Mohammad Zahir, head of Kabul’s Criminal Investigation Department, said he had counted up to 20 bodies at a Kabul hospital, and expected the toll to rise.

Afghanistan has a history of tension and violence between Sunnis and the Shi’ite minority, but since the fall of the Taliban the country had been spared the large scale sectarian attacks that have troubled neighboring Pakistan.

The noon bomb in a riverside shrine, in the heart of old Kabul, appears to set a grim new precedent.

Shortly after, a bicycle bomb exploded near the main mosque in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, killing four people and injuring 17 others.

NOTE: Oh, and by the way, Andy reminds us that Ashoura season starting:

Ashoura Lura Lural

 Ashoura Lura Li

 Ashoura Lura Lural

 That’s a Shiite Lullaby
