“A group of suicide bombers struck outside a courthouse in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, killing at least five people in an attack claimed by a Taliban splinter group. The attack was the latest in a wave of militant assaults across the troubled country that has killed over 100 people since last week. The brazen suicide bombings have been claimed by various Islamic militant groups, including the breakaway Taliban faction. In Tuesday’s attack, three attackers hit the courthouse in the town of Tangi in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, bordering Afghanistan. The dead included a lawyer and police officers, according to Ijaz Khan, a senior police officer.” (02/21/17)
