At least six people have been killed by a roadside bomb that struck a passenger bus near Kharian, a garrison city about 75 miles southeast of Islamabad, Pakistan, according to local police officials.

The bus was travelling to Kharian from the nearby city of Gujrat.

Other reports claim the bomb was planted inside the bus, not on the road.

The attack, which wounded at least ten other people, comes one day after a double suicide bombing killed almost 90 military cadets in Charsadda district in northwestern Pakistan.

The Pakistan Taliban has claimed responsibility for both murderous attacks, allegedly in revenge for the death of Osama bin Laden by US commando forces in a May raid on a compound in Abbotabad.

However, police officials have expressed doubts that the Taliban is carrying out the attacks in response to bin Laden’s killing.
