PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AFP) – A suicide car bomber killed at least 88 people on Friday after targeting a crowd gathered for a volleyball game in a northwest Pakistan village in the deadliest strike in more than two months.

The latest bombing marked a bloody start to 2010 for Pakistan, which has seen a surge in attacks blamed on Taliban in recent months as Islamist fighters avenge military operations aimed at crushing their northwest strongholds…

A man detonated his vehicle, which was packed with explosives, as fans gathered at a field to watch two local teams face off at a volleyball tournament in the village of Shah Hasan Khan, in Bannu district, which borders the Taliban stronghold South Waziristan.

"The villagers were watching the match between the two village teams when the bomber rashly drove his double-cabin pick-up vehicle into them and blew it up," district police chief Mohammad Ayub Khan told AFP.

"The death toll has risen to 88 and 37 others were wounded," Khan said.

Six children and five paramilitary soldiers were among the dead, he added.

Khan said that more than 20 houses on both sides of the open ground where the match was being played had collapsed, some with families inside.

The tournament was organised by the local peace committee, who had supported a government operation to expel militants from the area, Khan said.

It was the highest death toll from a suspected militant strike since a massive car bomb on October 28 killed 125 people in a crowded market in the northwestern provincial capital Peshawar…

Ever notice how our media masters never use the word ‘civilians’ when it’s the terrorists who are doing the killing?

    Obamy told us many times what an expert he is about Pak-ees-tahn.

    He proved it by knowing how to pronounce the name of the country correctly. The idiot Bush didn’t know that.

    And Obamy traveled there long before he was elected emperor. He was so determined to soak up knowledge of that region that he flew there when he was flate broke and unemployeed, and when there were restrictions on visas. The idiot Bush never did that.

    Bush also shamed us by intimidating Mushareff into giving up the nuclear scientist who was arming the world, and used bully tactics to force Mushareff into controlling the millions of nutters who run around Pak-ees-tahn trying to blow people up. Oh the evils that man perpetrated!! We’re so lucky now to have a sensitive multi-cultural genius like Obamy who doesn’t have to ruin our image by acting like that.

    I shudder to think how much worse these near daily incidents would be without the boy king.

    Instead of worrying about these occasional incidents, we should start a website that tracks how many incidents the boy king has PREVENTED since he has been in office. The number must be in the thousands.

    And then we should have the settled scientists in the CRU tell us how many more incidents there would have been with BushHitler, and how much more horrible they would have been.
