Suicide bomber kills 7 at Pakistan bus terminal

A teenaged suicide bomber struck a bus terminal in northwest Pakistan yesterday, killing seven people in the sixth bomb attack in as many days to strike the nuclear-armed country, police said.
The bomb, apparently targeting an anti-Taliban militia leader, exploded in the small town of Jandol in the district of Lower Dir, 200 kilometres (125 miles) from the capital Islamabad. Pakistani troops fought a major offensive to expunge the Taliban from the area nearly two years ago.
Dir district police chief Saleem Marwat said seven civilians were killed and 18 wounded at the bus terminal, close to a car showroom, which was also damaged in the blast.
