Do Courts Need More Security?
Twenty-seven of the wounded remain hospitalized. The female judge was among the wounded. It is believed that the bombers were trying to free Taliban militants jailed on the premises. Also among the wounded was an attorney.
Qari Abdul Hayee (a.k.a. Asadullah), a former leader of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi militant group was arrested on Sunday. Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is a Sunni Muslim militant group that has terrorized minority Shiite Muslims in the region. Recently, gunmen riding on a motorcycle murdered a Shiite professor, Sibt-e-Jafar, on Monday.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the courtroom attack; however, such senseless violence emphasizes the need for tight courtroom security both in the U.S. and abroad.
