    The two nuclear armed nations are fierce rivals and have fought four wars and countless skirmishes.

    The center, in Islamabad’s affluent Bani Gala suburb, was attacked at about 8 p.m. local time [10 a.m. ET] Saturday, police said. “Eight to nine armed men approached the yoga center. They then proceeded to round up and tie up all three watchmen, and then went on to take their time to burn the place with the petrol they were carrying,” said Mohammad Imran, the Assistant Duty Officer of the Bani Gala police station.
