Suicide Bomber Kills 1, Wounds 7 in Northwestern Pakistan

Police in northwestern Pakistan say a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-filled car at a security post Tuesday, killing a Pakistani soldier and wounding at least seven others.

Authorities say the attack occurred in the town of Doaba in Hangu district.

Pakistan's northwestern tribal areas are considered to be Taliban and al-Qaida militant strongholds.

Elsewhere in the northwest, officials say two rockets landed near the runway of Peshawar airport before dawn Tuesday. Reports of damage varied, from slight to none at all.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
