Nine killed in Pak market blast
At least nine people were killed after a bomb blew up in a crowded market in northwestern Pakistan. The explosion in Salarzai in the Bajaur tribal area also injured over a dozen people, some of them critically. Twenty others were injured when the bomb, planted in a pick-up truck, blew up in the Pasht bazaar of Salarzai, which has a reputation as one of the toughest battlegrounds in Pakistan's struggle with the Taliban in the northwest.
Doctor Khalilur Rehman said, "There are nine bodies and 20 wounded brought to hospital," adding that two children were among the dead and four children were among the wounded.
