29 Killed in Pakistan Bombing

At least 29 people were killed and another 44 people were wounded Tuesday in a bombing in northwest Pakistan, in the region used as a supply route for NATO forces into Afghanistan. No one has taken responsibility for the explosion yet, which took place near a fuel station in the Jamrud area of the Khyber tribal region. The Khyber region is a stronghold for Taliban in Pakistan and al Qaeda affiliates, groups that have been responsible for 4,700 deaths in the region since July 2007. The deadly bombing came one day after Pakistani authorities recovered the bodies of 10 soldiers in an exchange for bodies of Taliban soldiers killed in a clash two weeks ago.
