• A daily summary of global reports on security issues.
A roadside bomb attack killed at least seven people, including three Americans, in northwest Pakistan on Wednesday, news agencies report. The US fatalities represent a significant victory for Taliban militants, who claimed responsibility for the attack, after months of increasing drone attacks.
Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) said that it had carried out the attack. A TTP spokesman accused the men of working for Blackwater International, a security contractor that changed its name to Xe in 2009 and that attracted widespread criticism over alleged excessive use of force in Iraq.
