PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Police say a suicide bomber has attacked a bakery in northwest Pakistan, killing 18 people and wounding 40 others.

Police official Liaquat Ali Khan says the attack occurred late Sunday in a neighborhood where army personnel live in the town of Nowshera.

It was the second bomb blast of the day. An earlier attack killed six people at a bus stop in the Matani area, also in the northwest.

The bombings were the latest in a wave of bloodshed to hit Pakistan since the May 2 U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden in the Pakistani garrison city of Abbottabad.
