Bus Bomb Kills 20

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan () -- A bomb ripped through a passenger bus in eastern Punjab province early Monday, killing 20 people and injuring 50, ambulance workers said.


No one claimed responsibility for the bombing near Sialkot, 190 kilometers east of Islamabad.


In other violence Monday, three people were killed in religiously motivated attacks in Pakistan's troubled Punjab province, just hours after police launched a crackdown throughout the province on known Moslem extremists.


The crackdown has resulted in the arrest of at least 700 Moslem extremists, most of them in the eastern Punjab capital of Lahore.
