Suicide bomber kills 15 in northwest Pakistan
PESHAWAR, Pakistan -- A doctor says at least 15 people are dead in northwest Pakistan after a suicide bomber blew himself up at a bus station in a busy market today. Most of the victims were on a small passenger bus.
The blast happened in Kohat city, near Pakistan's border regions with Afghanistan, where Islamist militants are strong. A spokesman for the Pakistan Taliban, the main militant group in the northwest, is claiming responsibility.
The target of the attack is unclear, though insurgents have exploded bombs in public places before.
On Monday, 50 people were killed in two blasts at a government compound in Mohmand, also in the border area.
