8 Killed in Pakistan Blast

Officials in northwest Pakistan say a bomb blast has ripped through a restaurant at a market, killing eight people and wounding 10 other people.

Authorities say the attack happened Saturday at a bazaar in the Salarzai area of the restive Bajur tribal region near the Afghan border.

Local officials say two pro-government elders were among dead.

Taliban militants have targeted members of the Salarzai tribe in the past because the tribe has formed a militia to drive the militants out of the region.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
