Suicide Attack Targets US Consulate In Pakistan



PESHAWAR - At least four people were killed in a suicide bombing that hit a U.S. consular vehicle in the Pakistani city of Peshawar, reports Al Jazeera.

The American embassy in Islamabad said that no U.S. citizens were killed in the attack, although there were conflicting accounts on whether Americans were among the dead. Local television showed footage of burnt U.S. passports.

The embassy also confirmed in a statement that two Americans and two Pakistani employees from the U.S. consulate were wounded in the attack on their vehicle.

At least 19 people were injured when a car, which was carrying up to 110 kilos of explosives rammed into the consulate’s four-wheel-drive vehicle, reports CNN.

There was no claim of responsibility but the Pakistani Taliban, who are close to al Qaeda, are thought to be behind the attack.

Although the identities of the victims remain unclear, it was the deadliest attack targeting Americans in the country in the past two years.

Peshawar is a gateway to Pakistan's tribal areas on the border with Afghanistan. It is one of the most dangerous cities in Pakistan for foreigners: there have been many attacks against foreign nationals over recent years.

Parenting v. intimacy, a delicate balance

Silvana Heredia

HAVANA — It was Summer, 2015. Nine months later, our daughter would be born. It wasn't planned, but I was sure I wouldn't end my first pregnancy. I was 22 years old, had a degree, my dream job and my own house — something unthinkable at that age in Cuba — plus a three-year relationship, and the summer heat.

I remember those months as the most fun, crazy and experimental of my pre-motherhood life. It was the time of my first kiss with a girl, and our first threesome.

Every weekend, we went to the Cuban art factory and ended up at the CornerCafé until 7:00 a.m. That September morning, we were very drunk, and in that second-floor room of my house, it was unbearably hot. The sex was otherworldly. A few days later, the symptoms began.

She arrived when and how she wished. That's how rebellious she is.
