Pakistan's northwestern city of Dera Ismail Khan on Monday, killing four
people and wounding two, police said.*

*"It appears to be a time-device," police official Abdul Ghaffar told

*He said the bomb was planted in a toilet adjacent to the mosque.*

*No one claimed responsibility for the attack. Ghaffar said he suspected
militants fighting security forces in the neighbouring tribal region of
South Waziristan were behind the attack.*

*Pakistan has seen a wave of militant violence since July last year and
hundreds of people have been killed in the attacks.*

*But, the violence has dipped recently after the new government opened talks
with al Qaeda-linked militants based near the Afghan border.*

*Members of Pakistan's Sunni Muslim majority and minority Shi'ites largely
co-exist peacefully. However, militant groups from both sides have killed
thousands of people in tit-for-tat attacks over nearly three decades.*
