Casualties were feared Tuesday morning after a bomb exploded near an intelligence office in the central Pakistani city of Multan. Terror attacks have bedeviled Pakistan over the past two months as Islamist extremists retaliate against an anti-Taliban army offensive in the country's northwest near the Afghan border. This is the first time Multan has been hit during a surge of violence that began in October and has already killed more than 400 people in the US-allied, nuclear-armed nation.
