At least eight people were killed and 28 injured after a bomb ripped through Lahore Thursday, officials said. The attack was the tenth in just under a fortnight, pointing to a resurgence in Islamist violence.The blast, the second to hit the provincial capital this month, crumpled cars and sent panic rippling through the city after a wave of attacks across Pakistan killed more than 130 people.Just over an hour later, rumors of a second blast in another affluent area nearby sent ambulances racing to the scene, though authorities later said the reports were false.The attacks included a previous bomb in Lahore on Feb. 13 that killed 14 people, and a devastating suicide blast at a Sufi shrine in Sindh province that left 90 devotees dead.
