Pakistan Bleeding

A suspected suicide bomber today killed 11 people and injured scores more following renewed violence at Islamabad's Red Mosque.

Seven police officers were among those killed when the blast tore though a hotel about a quarter of a mile from the mosque, where religious students clashed earlier in the day with security forces.

At least 11 people died and 43 were injured, officials said. Local television showed victims, many of them bleeding or badly burned and with their clothes in tatters, being carried from the wreckage to ambulances that had rushed to the Muzaffar hotel.
