Police said a roadside bomb has killed three members of a Pakistani bomb disposal team who were on their way to defuse another bomb elsewhere in the city of Peshawar.

Police officer Shahid Khan said the attack took place early on Monday in the Shaikh Mohammadi suburb. He said the three-member team was on its way to defuse a bomb that was uncovered in the Suleman Khel district.

The three victims were identified as bomb disposal expert Abdul Haq and his two aides. Mr. Khan said that after the incident, police found another bomb nearby, which was later defused.
