Ten dead in Pakistan blast

Bombings targeting police killed 10 people and wounded 14 in Pakistan’s volatile north-west and capital Islamabad last night.

Two areas in Pakistan’s militant-riddled north-west were hit by suspected US missiles, killing nine people, according to two Pakistani intelligence officials.

One of the earlier attacks, an apparent suicide car bombing, occurred in a police complex in Islamabad.

It wrecked an anti-terror squad building and wounded at least four police while politicians met elsewhere in the capital for a rare, private military briefing about domestic militancy.
