A car bomb set off by the Taliban in Faisalabad killed at least two dozen people and wounded over 100.

The car bomb touched off gas cylinders in a gas station, adding to the casualty count and damaged nearby buildings.

Faisalabad is the center of Pakistan's textile industry.

The bombing is the latest in a string of attacks by the Pakistani Taliban over the last three years. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the Faisalabad attack.

Meanwhile, a possible UAV attack near the Afghan border killed five suspected militants.
