A suicide bomber dressed as a military figure attacked the UN World Food Programme office in Islamabad, Pakistan, killing five people. All UN buildings in Pakistan were immediately closed as a result of the attack. By dressing as a soldier, the attacker circumvented a two-story wall the UN had built to prevent against car bombs. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon described the attack as a "heinous crime."
