Also Tuesday, Pakistani police say security forces foiled a major suicide attack in Quetta, the capital of southwestern Baluchistan province. Officials say five militants, including three women, were planning to attack an army checkpoint when police intercepted them. The attackers were killed in the resulting exchange of fire. Authorities say the women were Chechen.Now of course one never knows about claims made by Pakistani "authorities" but if Chechen Black Widows are loose in Pakistan, ya'll got a problem.
