Bombing in Pakistan Kills Child

Pakistani police say a suicide bomber blew himself up in the country's volatile northwestern region, killing a child and wounding four other people.

Authorities say the attack happened Tuesday in the Swat Valley, near the border with Afghanistan. Suicide bombings in the region have killed at least 10 people in the last week.

The Pakistani government has been trying to regain control of the Swat Valley in recent months, after militants regrouped there from other Pakistani border areas with Afghanistan.

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