Foreign news digest for

Two suicide bombers struck outside a police complex in northwestern Pakistan on Thursday, killing 15 people and injuring 30. The attacks in Bannu underscored the security threat that persists in the region despite army operations and U.S. missile strikes there against al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The second blast occurred as rescuers responded to the first -- a militant tactic seen before in Pakistan, but not often. The city's police chief was among the wounded, a hospital official said. The attacks coincided with a visit to Pakistan's capital, Islamabad, by White House national security adviser James L. Jones.
