Just Another Sunny Day in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan

Meanwhile, in the other "Islamic Republic":

Gunmen have attacked a hospital in the western Pakistani city of Quetta, hours after an explosion on a bus killed at least 11 female university students....

An extremist Sunni militant group, Laskar-e-Jhangvi, told the BBC it carried out both attacks...

The latest violence began when a bomb exploded on a bus carrying female students at a university....

Later explosions rocked the medical centre where the students were being treated.

Militants armed with grenades were positioned there and exchanged fire with members of the security forces who rushed to the scene.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said a subsequent siege ended after security forces stormed the building.
