KAMRA, Pakistan (AP) -- A suicide car bomber struck near a bus carrying children of Pakistani air force employees to school at a northern army base Monday, the military said. At least five children were wounded.
The bomber sped toward the bus and detonated his explosive yards away from it, said Tariq Hanif, the police chief in Kamra, where the army base is located.
''The bus driver has told us that he tried his best to avoid a crash on seeing the suspected speeding car approaching toward him,'' Hanif said.
Police said the children were all under 12. They were in stable condition, said army spokesman Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad. The bus driver and a guard were also injured.
''This barbaric attack shows how cruel the terrorists are,'' Arshad said. continued
