Car bomb in Pakistan kills 12, injures 32

A car bomb exploded Thursday at a camp targeting internally displaced people from northwestern Pakistan, killing 12 people and injuring 32 others, police said.

The Jalozai camp is located about 35 kilometers (22 miles) outside of Peshawar and houses people from the country's restive tribal regions.

Authorities estimate the car contained 30-35 kilograms (66-77 lbs) of explosive material. Three other vehicles were destroyed in the blast.

    These are unarmed people who want to have nothing to do with the fight. They just want live. The people who commit these sort of attacks are not martyrs. These people are cowards and idiots.

    Pakistani Muslims kill more innocent people than all drone strikes combined. I was worried that someone or something could surpass Pakistani record - but they do not have a chance. Pakistanis still hold the record firmly.

      @banacy - I completely agree. You are so articulate. You said it so well.
      So, now I have to tell a joke.
      Q: A Pakistani, Yemeni, and a Saudi Arabian were talking. Who was doing most of the listening?
      A: FBI.

      @banasy - Thank you, thank you, thank you, Pakistan. Pakistan will show to the world how to blow up innocent people. God speed.

      The biggest terrorist group is RAW (India's equivalent of the CIA). They openly conduct terrorist activities inside of Pakistan to destabilize the government. They want you to focus on Pakistan, so they can continue with their human rights violations in Kashmir. Not only does Pakistan have to deal with its own terrorism problem but also a neighbor that actively tries to destroy its every neighbor to become local police man.

    @banasy - You are so right.
    And did I forget to say that Osama was not killed in Pakistan. Pakistan gives 100% safety guarantee to all terrorists - so Osama could not possibly have been killed in Pakistan.
    These victims of this bomb blast were only a bunch of deadbeat innocent people who did not pay up for their own protection. Paying terrorists are always well taken care of in Pakistan.

      @Mary - Hi ole friend. I completely agree with banasy. He is so knowledgeable - there are many more innocent people killed by Pakistanis than drones. Number of innocent people killed accidentally by drones pales in comparison to those killed indiscriminately by Pakistani Islamists in their bombings. I will go to the mosque tomorrow. Would you care to join me?
