Two gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on an army vehicle in Pakistan's capital Tuesday morning - the second such attack in days - but no one was wounded or killed, police said. Islamist insurgents in Pakistan have staged several assaults in recent weeks against security forces, apparently to retaliate for the army's offensive in their stronghold of South Waziristan, a tribal region along the Afghan border. Last Thursday, gunmen on a motorcycle fired on an army jeep in another part of Islamabad. A brigadier and a soldier died in that attack, while the soldier driving the car was wounded.
