Bomb blast hits Pakistani city

Bomb explodes near intelligence office in the central Pakistani city of Multan.

    The cause of the blast was not clear but casualties are feared, said police sources

    The bombing is the latest in a wave of attacks in an apparent response to the Pakistani army's offensive against Taliban fighters in the tribal areas near the Afghan border.

    However, this is the first time Multan has been hit in the surge of violence that
    began in October and has already killed more than 400 people.
