Bomb Kills 9, Wounds 50 at Pakistan Spy Agency
Posted on Nov 12, 2009
The latest in a string of attacks in Pakistan this week happened Friday when a bomb exploded outside the Inter-Services Intelligence agency’s northwest headquarters in Peshawar, killing at least nine people and wounding 50.
The blast ripped off the front of the ISI building in Peshawar.
Insurgents have multiplied attacks on military targets in the city since the army launched an offensive against the Taliban stronghold of Waziristan last month.
Shortly after the Peshawar explosion, another suicide car-bomber killed three policemen in Bannu, a gateway town on the Waziristan border.
The region has now suffered five bombings in the last six days that have claimed the lives of more than sixty policemen, soldiers and civilians.
