    AT LEAST 70 people were killed and over 90 injured after gunmen wearing suicide vests stormed two mosques in Pakistan's second-biggest city. Squads of militants stormed into prayer halls firing guns, throwing grenades and taking hostages in the deadliest attack on Lahore - increasingly hit by Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked violence

    Officials quoted by Sky News said the death toll could climb to 80.In the first of two coordinated attacks, four unknown gunmen ran into a mosque in the heavily congested Garhi Shahu area of the city and threw hand grenades, according to eye witnesses.

    Chaotic live TV footage showed a gunman brandishing a semi-automatic weapon on the minaret tower of the mosque, with destroyed motorcycles lying on nearby streets. An earlier report from Pakistani broadcaster Geo TV said that between 1500 and 2000 people worshiping inside the mosque were taken hostage.

    Both mosques are used by members of the Ahmadi religious minority group, denounced in the past for being non-Muslim and routinely criticized for their involvement in the Pakistani military.
    Maybe for this? Just guessing here.
