Bomb Blast In Pakistan Kills At Least Nine

February 02, 2011

A bomb blast in Pakistan has killed at least nine people.

Twenty more were wounded when the bomb exploded in a market on the outskirts of the northwestern city of Peshawar.

Elsewhere, suspected militants have killed five policemen in a shoot-out in the volatile southwestern Baluchistan Province where Baluch separatists have been fighting decades for more autonomy and control of the resource rich region bordering Afghanistan and Iran.
