Bhutto survives bomb attacks on convoy

The confirmed death toll in Pakistan continued to grow Thursday after explosions tore through a crowd celebrating the return of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

Officials from six hospitals told The Associated Press at least 126 deaths and 248 injuries were confirmed after two explosions went off near a truck carrying Bhutto hours after arriving in Karachi.

Bhutto returned to Pakistan Thursday after eight years in self-imposed exile.
