    There have been several suicide attacks in Pakistan in recent months. A November attack on army trainees in the northwestern town of Dargai killed 42 soldiers.

     

    That attack was believed to be a response to a military raid on an alleged al-Qaeda training base near the Afghan border, in which 80 people died.
