Large Bombing at Pakistani Hotel

Gunmen armed with a large truck bomb hit a five-star hotel in Peshawar, Pakistan, killing 11 and wounding at least 65, according to an initial report from the Associated Press. "No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack in the largest city in Pakistan's restive northwest, but it fit the pattern of recent attacks the Taliban said it launched in retaliation for a military campaign against militants in the Swat Valley region," the AP reports. The Pearl Continental Hotel was home to 25 U.N. workers at the time of the blast.
