Bomb blast hits Pakistani capital

A bomb has exploded at a United Nations office in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad, killing at least three people.

A foreigner is said to be among those killed in the explosion, at the World Food Programme offices.

Last week at least 16 people died in two suicide car bomb attacks in north-western Pakistan.

Correspondents say a string of recent bomb attacks show the Taliban appear to be reasserting themselves after a series of setbacks.

‘A huge explosion downstairs’

Local television TV footage showed smoke rising from the heavily fortified UN building and shattered windows.
