Clinton decries violence in northwestern Pakistan

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, on an Asian tour, is condemning a suicide bomber for ramming his car into a U.S. government vehicle in northwestern Pakistan, injuring two Americans.

Clinton, in the midst of an Asian tour, says at the outset of a news conference in Jakarta that she wants to "very clearly condemn the attack on our consulate personnel in Peshawar, Pakistan."

Clinton adds, "We pray for the safe recovery of both American and Pakistani victims and once again we deplore the cowardly act of suidice bombing and terorrism that has affected so many around the world."

Clinton was in Indonesia's capital Monday to offer U.S. support for a regionally endorsed plan to ease rising tensions by implementing a code of conduct for all claimants to disputed islands.
