2 Rockets Defused at Pakistan Parliament

Appears that Southern Baptists are at it again, this time in Pakistan.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Two rockets rigged with mobile phones and primed to fire toward Pakistan's parliament were discovered by a construction worker Thursday and safely defused by bomb disposal experts, a security official said.

The security scare in Islamabad came hours after a homemade bomb exploded without injury in a park in the neighboring city of Rawalpindi, not far from a residence of President Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

A construction worker found the rockets on a lawn less than a half-scene from the National Assembly, the official said at the scene. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to media.
