Marriott bombed in Islamabad

It's a hotel in Islamabad where "foreigners" congregate because of it's good security. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack as yet but it appears to be a suicide bomb.

Hmm. Let me see, now. Who on earth could it be?

Fox News Channel is reporting 18 are dead and that a car bomb near the lobby is suspected.

Huge Blast strikes Pakistan Capital.

It's interesting to note:

The attack came soon after Pakistan's new president, Asif Ali Zardari, had made his first address to a joint session of parliament, pledging that Pakistan would not tolerate any infringement of its territory in the name of the fight against militants.
