Taliban bomb kills 13 near main Pakistani army HQ

A Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up near Pakistan's main military headquarters on Monday, killing 13 people just a day after the militants killed 26 troops inside an army compound in the northwest of the country, officials said.

 

The two-day barrage against the Pakistani military underscores the challenges it faces in dealing with a stubborn insurgency in tribal regions that border Afghanistan, which has already resulted in thousands of troops dead and wounded. (AP)
