30 dead in blast at Pakistan Al Qaeda camp

So, you were saying about those suicide bombers being sent to the US and Europe?

Around 30 suspected Al Qaeda militants, including several foreigners, have been killed in a blast at a training camp in a Pakistani tribal area bordering Afghanistan, officials said. There were conflicting accounts about the cause of the explosion in North Waziristan district. Residents said three US missiles came from across the frontier while officials said the insurgents were killed by their own bombs.

Does it really matter? Either way, you play with explosives you go boom. It's just the circle of life.

"Around 30 people were killed in the blast. Ten to 15 are foreign nationals. They had assembled there and were in the compound, using it as a training compound," chief military spokesman Major General Waheed Arshad told AFP.

They won't be graduating.

"There are some Arabs and Turkmen among the foreigners who died in the blast. We don't know what caused it but local reports say it was a training camp used by the militants to prepare explosives."

Consider this a lesson courtesy of the United States. Class dimissed.
