#1
Two suicide bombers today blew themselves up outside a paramilitary force's training facility in northwest Pakistan, killing 73 people and injuring over 100 in the first major terrorist attack since Osama bin Laden was gunned down by US forces last week.

The first bomber, who was on foot, detonated his explosive vest near the main gate of the Frontier Corps training centre at Shabqadar, 35 km from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa capital Peshawar.

A large number of recruits who had completed their training were leaving for home at the time of the blast.

The second bomber, who was on a motorcycle, struck about eight minutes later as security personnel were removing the dead and injured from the spot.

A total of 73 people, a majority of them Frontier Constabulary personnel, were killed, a police official was quoted as saying by state-run PTV.
