YAKAGHUND, Pakistan – The men and women wailed, stood stunned or wearily sifted through the rubble Saturday for bodies, survivors and answers.

Only one thing seemed certain: In the end, the two suicide bombers who killed 102 people in this village didn’t bother to discriminate among their victims.

Though anti-Taliban tribal elders meeting officials in a government office may have been the target, it was dozens of ordinary civilians in the Mohmand tribal region who bore the brunt of the strike, Pakistan’s deadliest this year. Many had come to the site to receive donated food and goods when the bombs went off Friday.

The attack showed that Islamist extremists remain a deadly force along Pakistan’s northwest border with Afghanistan, even when barraged by army offensives or drone-fired U.S. missiles.

But such analysis meant little to Adnan Khan, who still could hardly fathom why 10 of his relatives had to die.

“People came here yesterday to receive biscuits and edible oil,” the college student said midday Saturday. “I don’t know why terrorists killed them.”

The attack also wounded 168 people in the village of Yakaghund, which has a population of about 4,000 and lies on the edge of Pakistan’s tribal belt and the Khyber-Pakhtoonkwa province.

It’s a situation the U.S. has watched warily, nudging its allies in Islamabad to clamp down on militants who threaten Western troops across the border in Afghanistan and to destabilize nuclear-armed Pakistan itself.

People on Saturday kept up the search through the piles of brick and rubble left behind.

At least 15 people were still believed to be trapped somewhere beneath, said Ibrahim Khan, a local security official who gave the latest casualty tolls.
