PESHAWAR: A bomb planted outside a house in Charsadda exploded on Monday and killed at least three people, including a woman and two children, DawnNews reported.

According to police, unknown miscreants planted the bomb outside the home of a local, which exploded causing a nearby house to collapse.

In the blast, a woman died along with two children while her husband and another child were receiving treatment at a hospital.
