The White House is condemning attacks in Pakistan that left dozens dead. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says the timing of the violence makes the attacks "even more reprehensible," coming during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and as Pakistan recovers from devastating floods.
The Pakistani Taliban has taken responsibility for a blast Friday on a Shiite procession in southwest Pakistan that killed 43 people. Hours earlier, at least one person died and several others were wounded in a suicide attack on a mosque belonging to a minority sect.
