3 killed in attack near Peshawar

August 24, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Pakistani authorities said a suicide bombing on the outskirts of the northwestern city of Peshawar killed three people and wounded 15 others. Peshawar Police Chief Safwat Ghayur said the bomber also died in the attack.

Ghayur said the bombing appeared to be the result of a fight between two militant groups. Zakir Ullah, a police official at the scene, said two men exchanged gunfire in the street shortly before the bomber detonated his explosives.

Television footage showed several wounded people, including at least two children, being treated at a hospital.
