Suicide bombers on the rise in Pakistan


Shahan Mufti of the Christian Science Monitor reports from Islamabad.

A suicide bomber in Pakistan killed at least 30 and wounded 100 when he drove into a gathering of tribesmen who were in the midst of plans to combat insurgents in the country.

Since the beginning of the year, 28 bombings have killed over 471 people in Pakistan by suicide bombers — more deaths than either Iraq or Afghanistan.

Shahan Mufti of the Christian Science Monitor speaks with Martin Savidge from Islamabad about the escalating violence in Pakistan, President Asif Ali Zardari’s ability to handle the insurgency and the challenges of dealing with various opposition forces.
