ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Officials in Pakistan say it was a Taliban suicide bomber that struck a Shiite Muslim procession in Rawalpindi. At least 23 people were killed and more than 60 wounded.

Police tried to stop and search the bomber as he tried to join the procession Wednesday midnight, but he ran past them and detonated his explosives.

Earlier Wednesday, the Taliban set off two bombs outside a Shiite mosque in Karachi, killing at least one person.
