Car bomb at police station kills 3 in northwest Pakistan

Peace talks will go on even after a militant car bombing killed three people at a police station, Pakistan's new government and Taliban militants said. Friday's attack ended a five-week lull in violence that coincided with the installment of a civilian administration seeking to distance itself from President Pervez Musharraf's unpopular US-backed policies against the Taliban and al-Qaida. Friday's car bomb in the northwestern city of Mardan killed one police officer and two men working at a restaurant near the police station. Twenty-six people, including 18 policemen, were wounded.
