A bomb attack at Dhaka’s main Shia site has killed one person and injured nearly 80 more while they gathered for the Ashura procession. The tragedy follows a similar attack in Pakistan that killed 15 Shias. At least three small bombs on Saturday were detonated outside the Husseini Dalan, as thousands of Shiite Muslim worshippers gathered for the annual Ashura procession, which marks the peak of the mourning month of Muharram, DW reported.
