20 killed in attack on 2 sect mosques in Pakistan

An emergency worker says 20 people have been killed at one of the two mosques attacked in eastern Pakistan.
Dr Rizan Nasir says fighting was still going on Friday at the other mosque in the city of Lahore.
Gunmen armed with grenades attacked the mosques during Friday prayers.
The mosques belong to a minority sect that has experienced years of state-sanctioned discrimination and occasional attacks by radical Sunnis.
