SCRIPT:

A SERIES OF BOMBINGS IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF PAKISTAN KILL AT LEAST 115 PEOPLE ... INCLUDING 81 WHO DIED IN THIS CITY IN AN ATTACK ON A BILLIARDS HALL.

THE BLASTS COME ON ONE OF THE DEADLIEST DAYS IN RECENT YEARS IN PAKISTAN ... WHERE THE GOVERNMENT FACES AN INSURGENCY BY TALIBAN AND OTHER MILITANTS IN SOME AREAS OF THE COUNTRY.

THE BILLIARD HALL WAS HIT BY TWIN BLASTS 10 MINUTES APART ... LOCATED IN AN AREA DOMINATED BY SHIITE MUSLIMS. AMONG THE DEAD ... POLICE, JOURNALISTS AND RESCUE WORKERS RESPONDING TO THE FIRST BLAST.

A SECTARIAN MILITANT GROUP IS CLAIMING RESPONSIBILITY ... SAYING THE FIRST BLAST CAME FROM A SUICIDE BOMBER ... THE SECOND FROM A CAR BOMB.

RADICAL SUNNI GROUPS OFTEN TARGET PAKISTAN'S SHIITE MINORITY ... CLAIMING THEY HOLD HERETICAL VIEWS AND ARE NOT TRUE MUSLIMS.
