Bombing outside restaurant in Pakistan wounds 15

Posted:
Police in Pakistan say a bomb attached to a motorcycle has exploded outside a restaurant near the capital, Islamabad, wounding at least 15 people.
   Police officer Abdul Majeed says the bomb exploded late Thursday in Rawalpindi, a garrison city near Islamabad.
   Majeed says rescuers transported all the victims to a nearby government hospital. Majeed declined to say who could be behind the attack.
   Pakistan has witnessed hundreds of bomb and gun attacks in recent years, with most being blamed on local militants. The latest bombing comes at a time when authorities are trying to reach a peace deal with the Pakistani Taliban through peace talks.
