Pakistanis run away from the site of a blast shortly after a car explosion in Peshawar, Pakistan, yesterday. A
car bomb exploded on a crowded street in northwestern Pakistan, killing scores of people in the third blast to
hit the troubled city of Peshawar in a week, officials said. AP PHOTO
PAKISTAN---A car bomb ripped
through a crowded street in
Peshawar s oldest bazaar yesterday,
killing 40 people in the third blast to
hit the troubled Pakistani city in a
week, officials said. No one immedi-
ately claimed responsibility for the
The explosion appeared to have been
caused by a bomb planted in a parked
car and detonated by remote control,
said police officer Zahid Khan. It went
off near a mosque and a police station,
damaging the house of worship and
nearby shops and engulfing many vehi-
cles in flames, police said.
At least 40 people were killed and
90 wounded, said Jamil Shah, a
spokesman for Lady Reading Hospital,
where the victims were taken.
Such attacks in Peshawar, in north-
western Pakistan, have claimed more
than 140 lives since last Sunday, when
two suicide bombers blew themselves
up in a crowd of worshippers at a
church, killing 85 people. On Friday, 19
people died when a bomb planted on
a bus carrying government employees
exploded in the Peshawar outskirts.
The Sunni militant group Jundullah
claimed responsibility for the church
attack, saying it targeted Christians to
avenge the deaths of Muslims killed by
US drone strikes.
The dead included 14 members of a
single family who were visiting
Peshawar to plan a wedding along with
their driver and an assistant, said rel-
atives. Mohammad Alam said the group
had come to Peshawar from a nearby
village to invite him to their son's wed-
ding. He said they were in a van when
the bomb exploded.
Many of the old buildings in the his-
toric Qissa Khawani market are made
of wood, which easily caught fire, said
senior police officer Shafqat Malik.
People bloodied and covered with ash
ran from the scene, one man carrying
a young child whose face appeared
blackened from soot.
The new government of Prime Min-
ister Nawaz Sharif has said it would
like to negotiate with the militants to
end the bloodshed, but so far those
efforts have made little progress.
On Saturday, a spokesman for the
Taliban said Sharif's demand that the
militants lay down their weapons and
respect the constitution indicated the
new leader is not serious about peace
talks. Previously Sharif had not given
preconditions for the talks.
Also in northwestern Pakistan, two
missiles from an American drone hit a
compound in North Waziristan on yes-
terday, killing three militants affiliated
with the Punjab province branch of the
Pakistani Taliban, said two intelligence
