Suicide bomber attacks militant commander's compound in northwest Pakistan, 9 killed
By The Associated Press

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) Police say a suicide bomber attacked a militant commander's compound in northwest Pakistan, killing at least nine people, including three children.

Amjad Khan, a senior tribal police official, says the compound attacked Saturday in Spin Dal village in the Orakzai tribal area was owned by militant commander Mullah Nabi.

It's unclear who carried out the attack.

Nabi is a rival to another prominent commander from Orakzai, Mullah Toofan, who is allied with the Pakistani Taliban.

Khan said the bomber tried to enter the guest quarters in Nabi's compound and detonated his explosives when he was challenged by guards outside.

Sabar Gul, another tribal police official, said three children were among the nine dead and 15 people were wounded.
