Twin blasts hit Sufi shrine in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Two blasts hit a Sufi shrine in Pakistan's eastern city of Dera Ghazi Khan on Sunday, causing casualties, police said.

"The blasts took place one after another. There are casualties but I cannot give you any figure at the moment," Zawar Ali, a city police officer, told Reuters by telephone.

Muslim militants abhor the unorthodox Sufi interpretation of Islam and have attacked Sufi targets in Pakistan several times.
