Pakistan Blast at Least Kills 12

Pakistani authorities say at least 12 people have been killed and more than 30 others wounded as a result of a bomb blast at a refugee camp northwest Pakistan Thursday.

Reports say a car bomb went off at the Jalozai refugee camp near Peshawar. The blast damaged several other cars and created a crater at the site.

The blast came as hundreds of people lined up for food rations. The camp is home to refugees from tribal areas along the border, who are fleeing fighting between the Pakistani army and Taliban insurgents.
