Bombs kill 5 people in northwest Pakistan

Associated Press –  1 hr 34 mins ago

KHAR, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistani official says two bomb blasts targeting anti-Taliban tribal elders and security forces have killed five people in the country's northwest.

Tariq Khan says the attacks occurred Thursday in Chamarkand town in the Bajur tribal region. Khan is a senior official in the area.

Khan said that in the first attack, a bomb planted alongside a road exploded as two anti-Taliban tribal elders were walking past, killing them both.

Khan said a second blast occurred when security forces rushed to the scene, killing two paramilitary soldiers and one police official.

Both bombs appeared to be detonated by remote control.

No group has claimed responsibility. But the Pakistani Taliban have carried out many similar attacks in the past.

The Paki nation is built on a foundation of lies......

"The Baloch have been fighting for their independence since 1948 when the Pakistan Army invaded the territory and hung the leaders. What this article fails to mention is that Baluchistan became an independent state 3 days prior to Pakistan's birth on August 14, 1947.

....Balochistan is an occupied country and nation with its own distinct language, culture, cuisine and customs with a 1,000-year history that predates Pakistan. It has more legitimacy as a nation state than say, Palestine or Kosovo."
