Pakistan bus bomb kills 6

ISLAMABAD: At least six people were killed and 10 others wounded on Saturday when a bomb planted in a bus exploded in an eastern Pakistani town, police said. "At least six people were killed in the blast," senior police official Afzal Bhatti said, adding that those wounded have been moved to nearby hospitals. The blast took place near the garrison town of Kharian, some 130 kilometres (80 miles) southeast of the capital Islamabad. No one has so far claimed responsibility for the bombing but Taliban militants have threatened deadly attacks in revenge for the May 2 killing of Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden by US commandos in the northern city of Abbottabad.
