Deadly blast hits mosque in Pakistan

Per Al Jazeera, "At least 30 people have been killed and 150 others injured after a bomb exploded inside a Shia mosque, 60km south of the Pakistani capital Islamabad, officials say." The blast occurred in the city of Chakwal.

Twitterers in Pakistan voiced concern about the attack; many noted their displeasure with the Pakistani government, as this was the third terrorist incident in recent days.
