Blast kills 13 as Pakistani Taliban avenge executed Islamist

A suicide bomber killed 13 people and injured 23 in northwest Pakistan on Monday, in an attack which the Taliban said was revenge for the hanging of an Islamist assassin last week. The bomber attacked as lawyers and litigants were arriving at a court complex during the morning rush hour in the town of Shabqadar. The Pakistani Taliban’s Jamat-ul-Ahrar faction claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it avenged the hanging of Mumtaz Qadri who gunned down the liberal governor of Punjab in 2011.
