PESHAWAR, PAKISTAN - NOVEMBER 19: A woman grieves at the site of a suicide bomb blast on November 19, 2009 in Peshawar, Pakistan. A suicide bomber detonated himself outside of a court building near the Supreme Court complex of Pakistan, in Peshawar today, killing at least 15 people and injuring at least 25, officials said, in the latest of a wave of numerous attacks that have struck the Northwest Pakistan city, closest to the Afghan border. Peshawar, the bustling frontier city on the edge of the mountainous western tribal regions, has become the main target of Insurgent violence since the Pakistan Army's offensive in South Waziristan, against the Taliban, began last month. The suicide bomber detonated himself on being searched whilst attempting to enter the court complex. The attack occurred across the road form the Pearl Continental Hotel, which was attacked earlier in June of this year. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images)
