Suspected militants set off a blast while making bombs at their compound in northwestern Pakistan on Saturday, killing at least eight people, including a woman and three children, army officials said. The explosion occurred in the tribal village of Mosaki, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of Miran Shah, the main town in the North Waziristan tribal region, army spokesman Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan said. Several male foreigners were among those killed, but Sultan said he did not have their identities or nationalities, and it was not immediately clear if top Taliban or al-Qaida suspects were among them. The suspects set off the blast while making detonators for improvised bombs at their mud-walled compound, Sultan said.
