Pakistan - bomb kills 8 in Rawalpindi

A bomber targeted a crowd killing the army Surgeon-General in the Pakistani town of Rawalpindi on Monday [BBC / CNN]. Seven others died in the blast which comes a little over a week after two main opposition parties won in the election against Pervez Musharraf. The PPP and the Pakistan Muslim League-N have since formed a coalition and have called on Musharraf to step down from politics [CNN]. Today’s suicide attack is the latest in a series of blasts seen in the town one of which killed the former PPP leader Benazir Bhutto.
