    Pakistan bus explosion kills 13 people

    Yahoo has news that an explosion on a bus, in southwest Pakistan, has killed 13 people, and injured a further 20 people:

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing, which will deepen concerns over Baluchistan, where violence between tribal militants and security forces has escalated recently in remote areas of the province. The tribesmen resent the presence of security forces and demand more revenues for natural resources, including natural gas, extracted from their territory. Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao told state-run Pakistan Television it was too soon to say who was behind the bombing, but Yaqoob suggested it was linked to tribal violence. "This is part of the situation that has been going on in Baluchistan for the past quite some time, and those people have a hand in this who have been involved in this type of explosion," Yaqoob told reporters.
