Peshawar, Pakistan (Reuters) - Pakistani militants, who have escalated attacks in recent weeks, killed at least 41 people in two separate incidents, officials said on Sunday, challenging assertions that military offensives have broken the back of hard-line Islamist groups.
The United States has long pressured nuclear-armed ally Pakistan to crack down harder on both home-grown militants groups such as the Taliban and others which are based on its soil and attack Western forces in Afghanistan.
In the north, 21 men working for a government-backed paramilitary force were executed overnight after they were kidnapped last week, a provincial official said.
Twenty Shi'ite pilgrims died and 24 were wounded, meanwhile, when a car bomb targeted their bus convoy as it headed toward the Iranian border in the southwest, a doctor said.
New York-based Human Rights Watch has noted more than 320 Shias killed this year in Pakistan and said attacks were on the rise. It said the government's failure to catch or prosecute attackers suggested it was "indifferent" to the killings.

Hmmm... One bunch of Satan worshipers kills another group of Satan worshipers. I’m having a hard time working up any sympathy here.
Musloms killing moslims? Say it aint so!
If Israel didn’t exist...this wouldn’t have happened.../s
No one else will ever be muslim enough.
It may well be the opposite. Their mutual hatred of the State of Israel is the only thing standing in the way of a total genocidal war between Shiites and Sunni.
This mutual slaughter seems to occur throught the Islamic world.
If they wish to butcher one another, prudent people move aside.
“Their mutual hatred of the State of Israel....”
Their mutual hatred of anything non-muslim.
Just for the record keep in mind that the victims in this attack, the Shi’ites, are actually the crazy ones. The Sunis are considered less implacable, more “moderate” you could say yet are willing to engage in wholesale massacres for the crime of...what, not agreeing with them 100%?
maybe the residue of Sunni from pre-Partition India.
“Militants kill 41”
“Militants” - not terrorists.
“Kill” - not murder.
Maybe Republicans should start calling school shooters “Militant Psychos.”
Yes, Reuters is quite sympathetic to Muslims and like others in the MSM tries to tone down acts of Muslim terrorism.
“When your enemies are killing each other, get out of the way.”
Let them have at it!
If only we could encourage more self cleansing behavior in a cesspool far far away!
Yeah, me too. But seriously, which side do you root for?
Jeez. That’s like saying who was worse, The Wehrmacht or the SS?
Did they get their Weapons using the Gun Show Loophole?
Did David Gregory supply their 30 Round Magazines?
Were they NRA Members?
Inquiring minds and all that.
>”Thats like saying who was worse, The Wehrmacht or the SS?”<
Whoever had the snappier looking Uniforms.

Hold gun shows in Pakistan?
