A suicide bomber triggered a blast at an entrance to a luxury hotel in Islamabad, killing the guard who blocked him and wounding seven other people in the first terrorist strike in the Pakistani capital since 2005.

The explosion wrecked a side entrance leading to a nightclub in the basement of the five-star Marriott Hotel, in a downtown area near the parliament building and the president's office.

There was no claim of responsibility.
