Blast kills 11 in Islamabad

Blast kills 11 in Islamabad

Eleven people have died in a bomb blast in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad. The explosion happened as hundreds of religious students re-occupied the city's infamous Red Mosque.

Police faced crowds throwing rocks in protest against a government-appointed cleric. It comes two weeks after a bloody siege at the Mosque left over 100 people dead.

Students have been repainting the building red after the government whitewashed it following the violence.
