Pakistan Mourns Victims of IS Terror

Pakistan has closed two of its border crossings with Afghanistan and demanded that Kabul take action against 76 "terrorists" it says are hiding in Afghan territory in response to the worst attack on Pakistani soil since 2014.
At least 88 people were killed and hundreds more wounded when a suicide attacker targeted a gathering of worshippers at a shrine in the southern town of Sehwan on Thursday, Aljazeera reported.
The self-styled Islamic State terrorist group claimed the blast.
On Friday, Pakistan’s military said Afghanistan must take "immediate action" against the 76 people identified to them.
Security officials told Aljazeera that at least 39 suspected fighters had been killed in security raids carried out overnight in response to the attack.
Thursday's attack came after one of the bloodiest weeks in recent memory in Pakistan, with at least 99 people killed in a series of attacks since Monday, most claimed by the Pakistani Taliban or one of its factions.
On Monday, 13 people were killed in a suicide bombing at a rally in the eastern city of Lahore.
That attack was followed on Wednesday by a suicide bombing at a government office in the Mohmand tribal area and a suicide attack on government employees in Peshawar, killing six people.
Two police officers were killed on Tuesday while trying to defuse a bomb in the Balochistan provincial capital of Quetta.
