Bombing Kills Six in Pakistan

At least six people, including women and children, were killed and eight others wounded in an explosion near a petrol station in north-western Pakistan, say media reports citing the police, who said the bomb was planted in a truck.

The attack took place in Charsadda district, near Peshawar city, not far from the Taliban stronghold in Pakistan’s lawless tribal districts.

“Six people were killed and eight injured in the explosion. It was a passenger vehicle… the bomb was planted in a pick-up,” district police chief Mohammad Riaz Khan was quoted as saying by French news agency AFP.

The dead include two women and at least two children, police said.
