A suicide car bomber killed 10 people, including four children, today at a police checkpoint on the outskirts of the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar. The city has been a main focus of recent attacks, which in the last week alone have killed more than 50 people, including 10 yesterday at the regional offices of Pakistan's top intelligence agency.
"Suddenly, a car exploded with a big bang," said a police official of today's attack. "There was a long queue of the vehicles. One of our officials wanted to search the car when it exploded." Four children and a woman were among the casualties. The government has vowed that the attacks will not dent its resolve to continue a military operation in the region of South Waziristan.
