Five hurt in Pakistan blast
A bomb has exploded in a vegetable market in Pakistan, injuring at least five people, including a child.

The market in the town of Kamra near Attock city, about 70 kilometres west of the capital, Islamabad, was busy with Sunday shoppers.

Nine people were injured last week in a series of parcel bomb attacks in the southern city of Karachi.

Correspondents say Islamic militants were suspected of carrying out that attack, angered at the Pakistani authorities' support for the US-led war on terrorism.
