Taliban Strikes Again

The Taliban is not letting up. Militant fighters are responsible for a bomb in Lahore, Pakistan that killed nearly 30 people and injured hundreds more. The attack is considered an act of revenge for the successful military offensive in the Swat Valley, where the government claims they've killed 1,000 insurgents and chased out far more. In Lahore, several men opened fire and then detonated a car bomb outside the police intelligence agency building. Rescuers are still digging survivors out of the rubble and the death toll could rise. Lahore, the country's cultural capital, is fast becoming a target for a campaign of violence since it's the home of the Punjab police.
