BREAKING: Explosion at Pakistan Rally Kills 12!

There was apparently an explosion at a rally of Pakistani lawyers. I'll refrain from lawyer jokes for long enough to chronicle this event for you, beyond the fold.

A blast was heard in the Pakistani capital Islamabad on Tuesday, Reuters witnesses reported, and a television station said at least 4 people were killed. (Graphic/Reuters)


Update: Further details indicate that this was a suicide bomber, and that 12 people have been killed in the attack. I'll be posting details as I find them out, so be sure to check back!

(Content Warning: Some of the photographs contained here might be slightly graphic. Viewer discretion is advised.)
