A suicide bombing Friday on a funeral procession in northwestern Pakistan's Swat Valley killed at least five people and wounded 50, a government spokesman said. Interior Ministry spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema said the bombing in the valley's main town, Mingora, hit the funeral procession of a police officer killed in a roadside bombing earlier Friday. State-run Pakistan Television reported 16 people died in the suicide bombing, but gave no source for that information.
