Seven killed by car bomb; WORLD TODAY.

A SUICIDE car bomb devastated Pakistan's main spy agency building in the north-west today, killing at least seven people and striking at the heart of the institution overseeing much of the country's anti-terror campaign.

The blast in Peshawar was the latest in a string of bloody attacks on security forces, civilian and Western targets since the government launched an offensive in mid-October against militants in the border region of SouthWaziristan, where al Qaida and Taliban leaders are believed to be hiding out.

The early-morning blast destroyed much of the three-storey Inter-Services Intelligence agency building. Seven bodies and 35 injured people were taken to a nearby hospital.
