By The Assam Tribune

ISLAMABAD, May 13 (PTI): Within a fortnight of Osama bin Laden's elimination, Pakistani Taliban today carried out its first major strike to avenge his death, as two suicide bombers struck a paramilitary facility in the northwestern town of Shabqadar, killing 73 people and wounding over 100.

Over 115 people were also injured when the bombers struck a large group of Frontier Constabulary personnel about to go on leave after completing a year-long training course.

The first bomber, who was on a motorcycle, detonated his explosive vest near the main gate of the Frontier Constabulary training centre at Shabqadar, 35 km from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa capital Peshawar.

The second bomber, who too was on a motorcycle, struck about eight minutes later as security personnel were removing the dead and injured from the spot, witnesses said
