Car bomb explodes in Peshawar

  • At least 11 people have been killed following a car bomb blast in a busy market in the north western Pakistani city of Peshawar.

    At least 16 people were injured in the explosion on Friday near a mosque in the city’s southern suburb Mattani.

    Reports suggest a vehicle had exploded as it was being repaired at a mechanic's workshop.

    No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack but recent incidents in the area have been blamed on the Taliban.
