30 Die from Three Separate Incidents in Pakistan

Around 30 people lost their lives Saturday in Pakistan, which saw two suicide attacks and a suspected U.S. missile strike.

Around 12 people died when a truck carrying explosives was fired on by security forces at the tribal region of North Waziristan, CNN reports. Officials say the truck blew up before it rammed into the checkpoint, killing bystanders and pedestrians, including several children, at around 1:30 p.m.

A second bombing occurred when the bomber walked to a vehicle security checkpoint in Islamabad and blew himself up. Six people died, police spokesperson Bin Yamin told CNN.

From 12 to as many as 18 people were killed by suspected U.S. missile strikes in northwest Pakistan, local sources told CNN. The airstrike targeted a home in the village of Datakhel.
