Suicide bomber kills police cadets in Pakistan


Pakistan’s offensive against Taliban insurgents in the northern Swat Valley has been hit by renewed violence. A suicide bomber killed himself and at least 12 police cadets in Mingora. It was the second such attack there in recent days. The army moved into Swat in April, after the Taliban had staged bombings within 100 kms of the capital Islamabad.

The cadets were training at their barracks when the bomber, disguised as a recruit, walked in and blew himself up. Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani condemned the attack, but said it would not weaken his government’s determination to fight the Taliban.
