Multiple bomb explosions Thursday badly damaged the mausoleum of a 17th century sufi saint in Peshawar, witnesses and officials said. Rehman Baba, a renowned Pashto language poet, is revered throughout NWFP and in neighbouring Afghanistan. "Four remote-controlled bombs planted by militants in the mausoleum went off, causing serious damage to its structure," local police official Anwar Zeb told a foreign news agency. The grave was not damaged by the blasts, he said. But the explosions punched four large holes in the building and created wide cracks. A nearby tin shed had collapsed and the outer wall of the compound had also collapsed, a foreign news agency correspondent said. There was no loss of life in the blast, but it sparked a wave of anger among hundreds of Baba's followers, including women who visit his mausoleum daily. "The government cannot be pressurised by such tactics," senior minister in the provincial government Bashir Bilour told reporters.
