At Least 40 Killed in Huge Explosion at Pakistan Hotel.

The attack, at 7:55 p.m., was at Marriott. A video. The hotel is destroyed. This is, by initial reporting, the biggest suicide attack in the history of this country - dwarfing the Lahore attack from March of this year. The expected death toll is expected to rise.

You can follow news at Metblog Islamabad and at PK Politics (with video feeds).

I am calling friends and family in Islamabad.

update: Catch the hotel as it was.

update 2: NYT Slideshow.
