Using a nearby Islamist protest as cover, a terrorist in Islamabad, Pakistan, exploded a bomb outside a police station Sunday. Early reports spoke of heavy casualties – at least 10 dead and many others hurt. The blast occurred a few hundred yards from the site where thousands of people were observing the first anniversary of an Army raid that ended a rebellion at the radical Red Mosque.
Soldiers found and confiscated more than a ton of explosives at a farm outside Bogotá, Colombia, an Army spokesman said Saturday. He said the mix of ammonium nitrate and fuel oil apparently belonged to the rebel Revolutionary Armed Forces, which planned to stage reprisal attacks in the capital for last week's rescue of its 15 highest-profile hostages.
