Bomb Blasts Kill 12 Security Personnel in Northwestern Pakistan

Officials in Pakistan say at least 12 security personnel have been killed and many others wounded by explosions Sunday in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghanistan border.

At least two bomb blasts hit a security convoy in the Swat area, in the second deadly incident in 24 hours in the same Taleban stronghold.

On Saturday, a suicide car bomber struck a military convoy, killing 24 Pakistani soldiers and wounding 28 more.

In another incident Saturday, suspected militants detonated a bomb near a military vehicle, wounding two soldiers.

The attacks follow Tuesday's storming of the radical Red Mosque in Islamabad, where at least 105 people were killed.
