ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN) -- A car bomb detonated Saturday night in the heart of Islamabad,
killing at least 20 people, according to police, and shattering windows more than 2 miles away.

At least 20 people were injured in the attack in Pakistan's capital. Rescuers pulled bloodied victims
from vehicles, and other casualties could be seen in the street. Officials predicted the casualty
tolls would rise.

No one has claimed responsibility for this cowardly act. I hope there is no more loss of life.

The universe is big It's vast and complicated and ridiculous and sometimes, very rarely
impossible things just happen and we call them miracles
