"At least 40 people have died after a suicide bomb on a large crowd receiving food aid in north-west Pakistan. The blast took place in the town of Khar in the Bajaur region, in tribal areas close to the Afghan border -- a Taliban and al-Qaeda stronghold. About 1,000 people displaced by fighting had been receiving food at a distribution centre. Reports say at least another 50 people have been injured and the death toll could rise." (12/25/10)
