    Pakistan bombs kill 19

    QUETTA: Two bombings in Pakistan killed 19 people and wounded dozens on Friday as judges ordered former president Pervez Musharraf to appear in court to face charges of high treason or face arrest.

    The explosions underscored Pakistan's fragile security even as the government tries to negotiate a peace deal with Taliban militants in the country.

    In the southwestern city of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province, a bomb exploded near a bus, killing 10 people and wounding 37, said Dr Ali Mardan at a local hospital. Four were in critical condition, he said.

    The bomb, hidden on a bicycle, exploded when the bus drove by, police officer Abdur Razzak Cheema said. Two vehicles carrying Pakistani troops had just passed by, Cheema said.

    Witness Bakht Mohammad, 27, said he was going to a market in a rickshaw when the bomb went off.

    "I heard a big bang and then something hit, wounding my leg, back and both arms," he said. "I was bleeding and the driver started reciting verses from the Quran."

    Baluchistan is home to separatists battling the state and sectarian groups who often attack minority Shiites. It is also believed to be home to many Afghan Taliban members.

    In northwestern Pakistan, a suicide attacker blew himself up Friday near a police armored vehicle about 20 kilometers (12 miles) south of the city of Peshawar, killing nine people and wounding 43, police officer Safdar Khan said. One woman and a child were among the dead, he said.

    Police officer Mohammad Faisal said most of the dead were civilians, though the blast wounded many police officers.

    He said that police recently stepped up patrols in the area due to threats from militants from the nearby Khyber tribal region. The Pakistani army has carried out several operations in Khyber in an effort to rid the area of militants.

    One of the injured police officers, Tahir Shah, said the blast was so powerful that he felt it even inside the targeted armored vehicle. "I am still feeling deaf," he said.

    A 10-year-old boy, Bilal Khan, said he was selling popcorn on a cart in the bazaar when the attack took place.

    "My cart turned over, and I fell on the ground. Something hit me in the legs," he said.

    No one claimed responsibility for either bombing.

    The Pakistani Taliban, who operate in the northwest, are currently engaged in peace talks with the government. The group has announced a cease-fire but attacks claimed by its splinter groups have continued during the negotiations.

    Meanwhile, a Pakistani court issued another arrest warrant Friday for former ruler Pervez Musharraf, although it gave him until March 31 to appear in court before the warrant would be carried out.

    The legal proceedings in Musharraf's high treason case started in December but the former general has only appeared once in court since then and still has not been formally charged. The arraignment had been expected to take place Friday but Musharraf again failed to appear in court. His lawyers cited security concerns.

    The treason case stems from Musharraf's 2007 decision to declare a state of emergency and his firing of judges.

    This when there is a month long cease fire.

    This gives rise to a terrible situation, and a new dimension into the question about who is in control of Pakistan?

    This time the answer is not even TTP.

    Earlier the answer that was known was Civil govt. wasn't in control and Army to has lost control.

    So, none of govt. , Army or TTP is in control and can stabilize Pakistan.
