Islamabad Marriott reopens three months after truck bombing
Pakistani elite gather at the exclusive hotel amid heightened security. In the northwest, a suicide car bomber kills at least 36 people. Reporting from Islamabad, Pakistan -- It was a place where diplomats hobnobbed over sushi, army generals and senators married off their sons and daughters, and society matrons exchanged choice tidbits of gossip while working out in the well-appointed gym. When suspected Islamic militants used a massive truck bomb to blow up the five-star Marriott hotel in the heart of Pakistan's capital three months ago, killing more than 50 people, many educated, affluent Pakistanis likened the gaping crater left in the parking lot to their own hollowed-out sense of security.
