  • A twin bombing killed a Pakistani police officer and wounded nine people in the northwestern city of Peshawar on Wednesday, police said.

  • A roadside explosion was the first in the outskirts of the city, and the second bomb went off about half an hour later, after police and local TV crews arrived at the scene, police official Sher Khan said.

  • The area has long been a centre of Islamic militancy in Pakistan. One of the most horrific Taliban attacks killed over 150 in an army-run school in Peshawar in late 2014. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
