Bomb attack

A bomb attack killed four people and wounded dozens more yesterday in the main town of Pakistan's Swat valley, where the military put down a Taliban uprising last year, officials said.
It was the first such attack in the northwestern district since May and underscored prevailing insecurity in a region that was until last year had been largely outside government control and paralysed by Taliban militants.
The bombing came as the Indian and Pakistani foreign ministers in Islamabad held their first substantive talks since the 2008 Mumbai attacks torpedoed their peace process.
