|PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AFP) – Suicide bombers blew up vehicles in two attacks Saturday that killed 15 people in northwest Pakistan, in an escalating revenge campaign against security forces, officials said.
The second attack in Pakistan’s northwest city of Peshawar ripped through a crowded area near banks, shops and a wedding hall on a road leading to the army cantonment, hours after a similar attack outside a police station in Bannu.
Ten people were killed in Peshawar and another five on the outskirts of Bannu in a district close to the rugged tribal region of North Waziristan where Washington says Al-Qaeda and the Taliban are plotting attacks on the West.
