Peshawar: Car Bomb Kills 91

A car bomb tore through a busy market in northwestern Pakistan on Wednesday, killing 91 people as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton visited the country and pledged American support for its campaign against Islamist militants. More than 200 people were wounded in the blast in the main northwestern city of Peshawar, the deadliest in a surge of attacks this month.

Clinton was a three-hour drive away in the capital, Islamabad, when the blast took place. Clinton said. “These extremists are committed to destroying what is dear to us as much as they are committed to destroying that which is dear to you and to all people. So this is our struggle as well.”

The bomb destroyed much of a market selling bangles, dresses and toys that was popular with women and children. It collapsed buildings, including a mosque, and set shops on fire in an old part of the city crisscrossed with narrow alleys and clogged with stalls. Wounded people sat amid burning debris and body parts as a huge plume of gray smoke rose above the city. Crying for help, men grabbed at the wreckage, trying to pull out survivors trapped beneath. One two-story building collapsed as firefighters doused it with water, triggering more panic.

    I bet this woke Hillary up. Obama and his administration has not taken these terrorist serious. 3hey are blowing everything up. I’m very dissapointed with Obama, I voted for him thinking he had more to offer as president. It appears that he cannot govern the position. In ten months he should have better control of something. He has pointed the country one way while the world is falling apart. The least he could do is address the issues, even if he don’t do anything.
