Al-Qaida Retaliates with Bombings in Pakistan

A pair of suicide bombings—apparently in retaliation for the killing of Osama bin Laden— killed at least 80 people in northwest Pakistan early Friday. The bombings, which took place outside of the Frontier Constabulary paramilitary training center in Shabqadar, killed at least 69 recruits and 11 civilians while injuring at least 140 people, the Washington Post reports.

“This was the first revenge for Osama’s martyrdom. Wait for bigger attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan,” Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban, told Agence France-Presse.

The Frontier Constabulary is a force made up of Pakistanis which receives training from U.S. special forces.
