"A suicide bomber blew himself up in a courtroom on Monday in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar, killing four people and wounding more than 40 others, officials said. Two militants attacked the back of the court compound and were confronted by three police guards, said police officer Masood Afridi. The militants shot and wounded the policemen, but not before one of the guards gunned down one of the suicide bombers. The other bomber managed to get into the courtroom of a female judge and detonated his explosives, said Afridi." (03/18/13)
