A suicide car bomb devastated Pakistan's main spy agency building in the northwest Friday, killing at least seven people and striking at the heart of the institution overseeing much of the country's anti-terror campaign. The blast in Peshawar was the latest in a string of bloody attacks on security forces, civilian and Western targets since the government launched an offensive in mid-October against militants in the border region of South Waziristan, where al-Qaida and Taliban leaders are believed to be hiding out. Security forces guarding the Inter-Services Intelligence agency building opened fire on the attacking vehicle to stop it, but the bomber was able to detonate his explosives, said an intelligence official.
