Two suspected terrorists died in eastern Pakistan on Saturday when a powerful bomb they were carrying on a bicycle accidentally exploded near a cattle market, police said. The men apparently wanted to plant the device at the main cattle market in Cheecha Watni, a town about 100 kilometers (60 miles) east of Multan, a city in the eastern province of Punjab. "We believe that these two terrorists wanted to target the cattle market, where hundreds of people were present to buy or sell goats and other animals at the time," said Mohammed Bashir, an area police chief.
