THREE suicide bombers targeted a Shiite mourning procession in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore


It was the first major attack in Pakistan since devastating floods engulfed a fifth of the volatile country over the past month in the nation's worst-ever disaster.

The string of blasts ripped through the crowd at the moment of the breaking of fast in the ongoing holy month of Ramadan, and led to an outpouring of fury as mourners tried to torch a nearby police station.
Police fired tear gas shells to force back the surging crowd.Lahore, a city of eight million near Pakistan's border with India, has been increasingly subject to Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked attacks in a nationwide bombing campaign that has killed more than 3300 people in three years.
