Bomb blast in Northwest Pak, 1 Policeman killed, 3 injured
Bomb blast near security checkpoint in Pakistan’s northwest city of Peshawar, One Policeman killed, three others injured.
Although nobody was hurt when the first bomb went through the checkpoint, a second remote-controlled bomb detonated as police rushed to the scene and struck them, the BBC reports.
The police checkpoint had been abandoned following a bomb attack last year.
No terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far. Militants linked to al-Qaeda and the Taliban have killed hundreds of people in the region in recent years.
Last week, at least nine people were killed in a bomb attack near a police station in Peshawar.
