Suicide bomber kills 12 in Pakistan

“They were breaking their fast when a bomber blew himself up near them. So far, we have reports that 12 people have been killed,” a government official told Reuters by telephone from Jamrud, the main town in the Khyber region.
BBC rises the number of killed people to 15:
The blast hit a tribal police outpost at Torkham in Pakistan’s Khyber Agency, police and officials said
.
The attack came shortly after Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik said recent army successes in Swat, Waziristan and elsewhere had broken the back of the country’s insurgency.
CNN reports an even greater number of victims: 20.
The suicide bomber entered the barracks of a para-military force in the town of Torkham, in the Khyber agency, or district, and blew himself up, the official said.
