A powerful explosion blamed by police on a suicide bomber killed more than 30 people and injured at least 50 on Friday in the Pakistani city of Dera Ismail Khan, according to residents and Pakistani television reports. The bombing, targeting the funeral of a Shia Muslim man who had been shot in the city a day earlier, set off a chain reaction of chaos in the city atthe edge of Pakistan's lawless tribal areas. Enraged mobs attacked local security forces, ransacked shops and surrounded hospitals as members of the funeral procession struggled to secure treatment for the wounded.
