ISLAMABAD - A police official says a bomb blast in the Pakistani capital has killed 10 people.


Islamabad police chief Sultan Azam Taomori, in televised comments to reporters at the scene, said 10 people were killed and 37 wounded


The bomb went off in a fruit and vegetable market on the outskirts of Islamabad. Police official Yasin Malik said the bomb had approximately five kilograms (11 pounds) of explosives hidden in a fruit carton.


While such explosions happen frequently in Pakistani cities such as the northwestern city of Peshawar or the southern port city of Karachi, they are relatively rare in the capital. (AP)
