Pakistan suicide attack left 26 dead

In a suicide attack in Lower Dir, which borders Afghanistan, 26 people killed.

In recent months, groups around the Taliban seemed to have frequented in between Dir and Chitral district's neighbor to the north of the seven tribal regions, which are the traditional strongholds of the insurgency.

According to a report by the Pakistan Institute of Peace Studies (PIPS) in 2010 were in this country a total of 2,113 insurgent attacks, sectarian terrorists or cutting, which took the lives of 2913 people. Those numbers make Pakistan one of the countries hardest hit by the attacks in the world.
