Police report gunfire in




Pakistani police reported gunfire and an explosion close to a military parade ground in the garrison city of Rawalpindi on Friday. The parade ground is about one mile (1 1/2 kilometers) from the army headquarters. Police official Waqas Ahmed said officers exchanged fire with assailants at the scene. The attack is the latest in a series to rock Pakistan in recent months as the government presses an offensive against al-Qaida and the Taliban in the northwest. There was no immediate word on any casualties.
