(Newser) – Police say a suicide bomber has attacked a bakery in northwest Pakistan, killing 18 people and wounding 40 others. A police official says the attack occurred late today in a neighborhood where army personnel live in the town of Nowshera. It was the second bomb blast of the day: An earlier attack killed six people at a bus stop in the Matani area, also in the northwest. The bombings were the latest in a wave of bloodshed to hit Pakistan since the May 2 US raid that killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad. Click for more on yesterday's strike on "the brain" of al-Qaeda.
