Some 25 people were killed today when a bomb exploded in the southwestern town of Hub. The bombing struck a convoy carrying Chinese nationals and Pakistani security forces, but news agencies report that the victims were all Pakistanis.


Another attacker drove his explosives-laden vehicle into the gates of a police college in the northwestern town of Hangu, killing at least five. A police official said 13 people were wounded.


More than 150 people have been killed in a spate of violence across Pakistan following a bloody army siege against radicals in Islamabad's Red Mosque on July 10.
