Attacks across Pakistan Saturday killed at least 19 people.

In the deadliest attack, authorities say a suicide bomber detonated explosives outside the compound of militant commander Mullah Nabi in the town of Spin Tal. Nine of the dead were killed in that attack. The town is in northwestern Pakistan, near the Afghan border.

Nabi is a rival to another prominent commander, who is allied with the Pakistani Taliban.

Police say a roadside bomb exploded elsewhere in the country's northwest, killing at least three people.

Meanwhile, gunmen attacked troops in southern Baluchistan province's port town of Gwadar, killing at least seven soldiers.
