PESHAWAR: A bomb went off in a market in Peshawar city’s Matni area on Thursday, killing four people, DawnNews reported.
The blast hit a passenger vehicle, killing four people, including a woman and a child, said Peshawar police chief Liaquat Ali Khan. The target was not immediately clear, but on Sunday another blast in Matni killed six people.
Several anti-Taliban militias are based in the area.
