ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - A suicide bomber blew himself up Tuesday before a rally supporting Pakistan's chief justice against the president, killing 15 people in the latest attack in a spate of violence since the army stormed a mosque held by Islamic extremists.

The bloodshed has heightened tensions, with religious radicals calling for more revenge attacks on the government and troops moving into militant strongholds on the border with Afghanistan - a move welcomed by Washington as a help in the fight against terror groups.

President Gen. Pervez Musharraf condemned the blast as a "terrorist act," and officials said they were trying to determine responsibility.
