Bombing Kills Five, Others Wounded

A bomb in Balochistan, the southern region of Pakistan, killed five people recently, according to the BBC. More than 20 others were wounded, and it is likely that the death toll will rise, due to the critical condition of many of the wounded. Police say they think that tribal groups trying to gain more autonomy might have planned the bombing.

A recent Pakistani military raid killed rebel leader Nawab Akbar Bugti, which has disrupted life in the region. Balochistan is rich in oil, and Mr. Bugti supported giving the area a greater share of the resources. Pakistani officials, however, have accused him of organizing an armed insurgency against Pakistan.
