KARACHI, Pakistan — The streets of Pakistan's largest city were mostly quiet Friday as police stepped up patrols to prevent more violence after twin suicide attacks at a Sufi shrine sparked angry mobs to rampage through the southern Pakistani city.

Eight people were killed and 65 injured in the bombings Thursday evening at the most beloved Sufi shrine in Karachi. At least two buses were torched by mobs who also fired weapons into the air into the night. A bus also was set on fire Friday on a major road...

After Thursday's attack, condemnations came from across Pakistan, including from President Asif Ali Zardari, who was in Karachi at the time, and from the U.S. Embassy.

"We remain committed to fighting these murderers and expelling them from our land," Zardari aide Farahnaz Ispahani said in an e-mail.

Expelling these murderers from the Land ?

What a Joke
