Two die in Islamabad bombing

A suicide bomber attacked a police building in Pakistan's capital Saturday, blowing himself up in a courtyard after being shot by officers as he ran toward them, officials said. Two officers died and six were wounded.

The bombing in Islamabad was the latest in a string of attacks in Pakistani cities that officials blame on militants taking revenge for the military's month-old offensive to oust the Taliban from the Swat Valley in the country's northwest.

Senior police commander Tahir Aalam said two officers were killed and six others were injured.
