(Reuters)—A motorcycle packed with explosives blew up outside a mosque frequented by both Sunni and Shi'ite worshippers in Pakistan's volatile northwest on Thursday, as the month-old government struggled to curb a rising tide of attacks.

Just hours later, another explosion ripped through a major border crossing lying on a NATO supply route between Pakistan and Afghanistan, killing two people, a security official said.
