Pakistan was investigating a suspected suicide bombing that killed 15 elite commandos, the latest in a string of attacks targeting the military amid a surge of militant violence, reported The Courier Mail (15/9/2007, p.48).

Heavy fighting: The attack on a mess hall at a high-security military camp, about 70km northwest of Islamabad followed two days of deadly clashes in Pakistan’s lawless tribal zone and coincided with a visit of US Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte. Pakistani troops backed by helicopter gunships have killed more than 70 militants in two days of heavy fighting in the tribal areas bordering Afghanistan, where the US says Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden may be hiding.
