A Pakistani man mourns the death of a relative following a bomb attack in the small town of Pabbi on July 26, 2010. A suicide bomber killed seven people on July 26, blowing himself up at a gathering of senior Pakistani officials mourning the assassination of a cabinet minister's son by suspected Taliban. Police said the bomber was stopped while trying to walk into the home of Mian Iftikhar Hussain, information minister in Pakistan's northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, in the small town of Pabbi. The bomber struck shortly after Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik had visited to pay his respects over the death of Hussain's 28-year-old son Mian Rashid, who was shot dead on last week.
