Bomb Explodes at Luxury Hotel in Pakistan

June 9, 2009 By: Jena Tesse Fox

The Associated Press and the New York Times are reporting that a huge bomb has exploded at a luxury hotel in the Pakistan city of Peshawar, killing at least five people and wounding 25 others.

Police official Liaqat Ali says gunmen stormed into the Pearl Continental Hotel in the northwestern city on Tuesday night just before ''a big bomb went off.''

Sahibzada Anis, a top government official in Peshawar, says at least five people were killed and 25 wounded.

The blast is the latest in a string of attacks in Pakistani cities in recent weeks that officials say are revenge for a military offensive against Taliban militants in the Swat Valley.
