18 Killed In Suicide Bombing In Pakistan

Karachi, Pakistan (CNN)A suicide bomber has killed at least 18 people and wounded 26 others after blowing himself up at the gate to a religious shrine in a remote part of Pakistan, authorities told CNN.

One police constable was among the dead, said police officer Muhammad Iqbal to CNN.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abassi condemned the attack, saying in a statement that "terrorists have no religion." Worshipers had come to the shrine to mark Muharram, one of the holiest months in the Islamic calendar and for Shiites a time to mourn one of their imams, or saints.
