Pakistan hit by smaller attacks, killing at last 10

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — More extremist attacks shook Pakistan on Monday on the heels of a devastating bomb attack on the capital’s best-known hotel. Gunmen took the Afghan consul-general hostage after killing his driver, and suicide bombers killed nine policemen at a checkpoint in the valley of Swat, northwest of the capital.

The bombing of the deluxe Marriott hotel, in which at least 53 died and more than 260 were wounded, was still shrouded in mystery. A little known terrorist group called Fadayeen Islam — “Islamic Commandos” — took responsibility in a tape given to a Dubai-based television news channel, and claimed that there’d been 250 U.S. Marines and NATO officials at the hotel. Security experts said it was highly unlikely that American forces would be stationed at so vulnerable a location.
