A powerful bomb blew up a gas pipeline in a remote town of insurgency-wracked southwestern Pakistan, gutting dozens of shops but causing no casualties, a government official said Saturday. No one immediately claimed responsibility for late Friday's attack in Sui, about 300 kilometers (180 miles) east of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province, where the country's main gas fields are located. Abdul Samad Lasi, the top government official in the region, blamed the attack on supporters of a renegade tribal elder, Nawab Akbar Bugti, although he offered no evidence to back up his claim.
