Most of those killed were family members visiting the body of a man murdered by the Taliban in a bazaar earlier that day. "The people had gathered around his dead body when the bomber blew himself up," the Associated Press of Pakistan reported. Five policemen were also killed in the attack.
The Taliban have taken credit for the hospital suicide bombing. An unnamed Taliban spokesman "accepted the responsibility for the blast and warned to carry out more such explosions if operations in Swat and Bajaur were not halted," the Associated Press of Pakistan reported.
