1) A time bomb exploded in a crowded Pakistani passenger train Sunday, killing 10 people and injuring 32, railway officials said.

 The bomb went off on a local commuter train as it pulled out of the station in Hyderabad, the second largest city in the volatile southern province of Sindh.

 First reports said nine people died at the scene and the official APP news agency reported later that another had died of his injuries in hospital. The dead included a five-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy, ambulance workers said.

 Sindh Governor Mohammadmian Soomro said foreign forces might be behind the incident. ``The Governor said whosoever is involved in the heinous act, cannot be a Pakistani,'' the agency reported.

 Pakistani officials have blamed India for many such incidents in the past. India has always denied its involvement.


2) David Justice's single capped the Yankees' biggest late-inning comeback in 24 years as New York rallied for five runs in the ninth inning and three in the 10th to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-8 Sunday.

New York trailed 6-1 in the ninth before tying the score on Jose Vizcaino's single.

Then, after Brian Hunter's two-run homer in the 10th off Mariano Rivera (3-3), Paul O'Neill, Bernie Williams and Justice hit RBI singles off Jeff Brantley (1-4), who walked Chuck Knoblauch leading off and hit Derek Jeter with a pitch.

It was the fifth time in team history the Yankees rallied to win when trailing by five runs from the eighth inning on, the first time since May 18, 1976, at Cleveland.

Philadelphia dropped to 0-6 at Yankee Stadium, losing twice in the 1950 World Series and three times two years ago in interleague play.


3) The Bank of Japan has decided to leave interest rates unchanged, at near zero levels, in order to help the still-fragile Japanese economy.

The news comes after weeks of intense speculation that the Bank was poised to abandon its zero interest rate policy. Large Japanese companies recently reported that they were optimistic as business conditions were improving.

But the bankruptcy of a huge department store group, Sogo, a week ago, has fuelled fears that the economy is still in difficulties.

In a rare statement, the Bank's board said that Japan's economy is "approaching" a stage where deflationary concerns are being dispelled.
