A suicide bomber killed 16 people Thursday outside a courthouse in northwestern Pakistan, the latest attack in an onslaught by Islamist militants fighting back against an army offensive in the nearby Afghan border region. A doctor said 26 people were wounded in the blast in the main northwestern city of Peshawar. Thursday's bombing was the sixth in less than two weeks in and around Peshawar; the attacks have killed more than 80 people. Police officers were searching a man at the gate of the city's lower court when he detonated explosives on his body, government official Sahibzada Anees said. Several damaged motorbikes were strewn about the site, and firefighters sprayed water on a charred, smoking white car.
