Pakistani security officials gather at a Shiite Muslim mosque after a bomb explosion in Shikarpur, in Sindh province, on January 30, 2015A powerful bomb tore through a busy Shiite mosque in southern Pakistan on Friday, killing more than 60 people in the country's deadliest sectarian attack in nearly two years. The blast hit the mosque in Shikarpur in Sindh province, around 470 kilometres (300 miles) north of Karachi, as hundreds of worshippers attended Friday prayers. Pakistan has suffered a rising tide of sectarian violence in recent years, most of it perpetrated by hardline Sunni Muslim groups against minority Shiite Muslims, who make up around one in five of the population. Sindh health minister Jam Mehtab Daher told AFP that "the death toll from the attack has increased to 61".

British politicians often evoke Churchill to add weight to their arguments, tapping into a deep attachment felt by many who lived through World War IIFifty years after Winston Churchill's death, Britain on Friday paid tribute to its wartime prime minister, who remains a touchstone of political life and a reminder of a faded age of global influence. London's Tower Bridge was raised and the HMS Belfast warship fired a gun salute as the boat that carried his coffin up the River Thames in 1965 retraced its procession, with music from bagpipers on board. Family members cast a wreath in the water at Westminster and Prime Minister David Cameron attended a memorial ceremony in front of a statue of the cigar-chomping leader inside the Houses of Parliament. To this day, British politicians often evoke Churchill to add weight to their arguments, tapping into a deep attachment felt by many who lived through World War II.
