At least fifteen people were killed when a bomb exploded on a bus carrying government officials in the northwest Pakistani frontier city of Peshawar on Wednesday, officials said.
The attack took place on a main road after the bus picked up government employees from areas surrounding Peshawar and was transporting them to work in the city.
Bus had 40-50 commuters
“It’s premature to comment about the nature of the blast but it appears that explosives were planted inside the bus,” senior police official Mohammad Kashif said. “There were 40-50 people on the bus.”
