Bomber kills 5 at Pakistani U.N. food agency office

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – A suicide bomber dressed as a paramilitary soldier attacked an office of the U.N. World Food Programme (WFP) in the Pakistani capital on Monday, killing five staff, government and U.N. officials said…

The suicide bomber was disguised as a paramilitary soldier and got into the WFP compound after asking a guard at the gate if he could use a toilet, a government minister said.

A WFP spokesman, Amjad Jamal, said five members of staff had been killed, four Pakistanis and an Iraqi. Two of the Pakistanis were women.

"I went to my office on the first floor and as I sat on my chair there was a huge blast," WFP official Arshad Jadoon told Reuters outside the tightly guarded office in a residential area of Islamabad.

"All of a sudden, a smoke cloud enveloped the building and we came out where wounded people were lying," he said.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the attack was a heinous crime.

"This is a terrible tragedy for the U.N. and for the whole humanitarian community in Pakistan," he said in a statement condemning the bombing "in the strongest terms."

The United Nations temporarily closed its office in Pakistan after the blast for security reasons, a U.N. spokeswoman said

Monday’s blast led to a brief spate of selling at Pakistan’s main stock market but the market recovered to end 0.35 percent higher at 9,487.95 points

Maybe Pakistan’s stock market went up in the hopes that the UN would de-camp, as they usually do when they get targeted by their allies ‘insurgents.’

    Would one consider this a HATE CRIME or just your run of the mill “LOATHINGS?”

  2. VMAN says:

    These people are so eaten up with hate that they would rather have people starve. We need to kill them all. The men because they are the terrorists the children because they are future terrorists and the women because they give birth to the future terrorists.
