At least 24 people were killed and over a dozen injured when a car bomb ripped through a crowded market in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province on Tuesday.
Gulf News reports, the bombing, apparently aimed at causing maximum civilian casualties, was the third blast in as many days in or close to Peshawar, the capital of the North West Frontier Province, an area bordering the tribal region where the army is pushing into a key Taliban and Al Qaida sanctuary
Twitter users are in disbelief that another bomb blast has taken place in Pakistan.
