13-yr-old kills 41 in Pakistani market

India Times reports: 13-yr-old kills 41 in Pak market. Clearly, too young to know fear -

The bomber, reported to be aged about 13, flung himself at a military convoy passing through a busy market in Shangla, a northwest district near Swat where the army claimed to have flushed out Taliban rebels after a fierce offensive.

But Islamist extremist groups appear far from quashed, with an audacious raid on army headquarters over the weekend leaving 23 people dead and underscoring the vulnerability of the nuclear-armed nation.

At least 116 people have been killed in a series of devastating blasts and attacks
