PESHAWAR: A suicide car bomb attack targeted a police check post on the outskirts of Peshawar early Wednesday, killing four policemen and wounding six other people, police said.

The suicide bomber rammed an explosive laden vehicle into an armoured personnel carrier, reported DawnNews.

“The vehicle was coming from the tribal area. It was full of explosives and the suicide attacker was coming from Mohmand,” police official Liaqat Ali told AFP by telephone.

The blast took place early morning and has severely damaged the police check post. Authorities have cordoned off the area.

According to the Peshawar CCPO, the target of the attack was not the police check post but some other location. —Agencies
