Suicide Bombing in Pakistan Kills at Least 59

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up outside an arms factory near Pakistan's capital of Islamabad on Thursday, killing at least 59 people, as workers were leaving at the end of their shift.

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said Monday his party was withdrawing from the cabinet -- though it still supported the coalition government -- because of a dispute over restoring judges fired by President Pervez Musharraf.

Pakistan's National Assembly elected Yousaf Raza Gilani, a top official in slain opposition leader Benazir Bhutto's party, as prime minister Monday. Gilani then ordered the release of dozens of judges detained by President Pervez Musharraf.
