SW Pakistan Hotel Bomb Kills 11

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Aug. 14 (UPI) — An apparent terrorist bomb demolished a two-story hotel in Pakistan Sunday as the nation marked its Independence Day holiday, authorities said.

At least 11 people were killed and 21 were injured in the blast in Jafferabad, which sources told Geo News was believed to have been caused by a remote-control bomb planted inside.

Rescue crews toiled into the night in the southwestern Pakistan city looking for other victims still buried in the rubble.

No one claimed credit for the explosion; however, CNN said Islamist militants had been active around Pakistan during the holiday. Three people were killed earlier in the day when five rockets were fired into a military training camp in Waziristan.

Jafferabad is located in a sparsely populated and restive area of southwest Pakistan.
