PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) -- Authorities in Pakistan say a suicide bomber has struck a stadium hosting athletes from around the country.
At least two people died in the attack, which came in the volatile part of northwest Pakistan where al-Qaida and Taliban militants lurk. The Inter-Provincial Games had been promoted as a way to improve that region's battered image.
Officials are also reporting that dozens of masked gunmen have hijacked a supply convoy bound for U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan.
Pakistani security forces traded fire with the gunmen but were forced to retreat. The gunmen took the military and supply trucks, along with their drivers. Officials say such attacks are common around the Khyber Pass, but this raid was especially brazen.
