Multiple Deaths in Pakistan Suicide Bombing

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) - Intelligence officials say at
least 11 people are dead after a suicide bomber struck a restaurant
in volatile northwest Pakistan.

The two officials say the roadside restaurant's visitors at the
time included some two dozen militants opposed to Pakistani Taliban
leader Baitullah Mehsud.

They say several others were wounded in the Thursday attack in
the Tank town area near the tribal regions. The officials spoke on
condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to the
speak publicly to the media.

Pockets of Pakistan's northwest are strongholds for Taliban,
al-Qaida and other militants. The U.S. has pushed Pakistan to crack
down on the extremists.
