Pakistan's getting warmer

Yesterday, there was a suicide bombing outside the Marriott in Islamabad, 2 killed, 6 wounded.

Today, in Peshawar(NW Pakistan,) a second suicide bomber killed at least 11 and wounded at least 35.

(The Marriott is frequented mainly by foreigners, an Indian delegation was due later, and the Peshawar bombing appears to be aimed at Pakistani security forces trying to protect/manage Shiites during Ashoura.)

The violence in Pakistan is ticking up.
