8 dead in suicide Pakistan suicide blast

A suicide bomber killed at least eight people on Tuesday (February 4) near a mosque in the Pakistani city of Peshawar, police and doctors said. Police said the attack, possibly the work of more than one suicide bomber, had taken place as worshippers left the mosque and walked towards a local hotel. Hospital sources in Peshawar said at least 28 people had been wounded. The explosion, which echoed around the city centre, happened at a time when the government is trying to engage Pakistani Taliban militants in peace negotiations. Any major assault on civilians or security forces could upset those efforts. Some radical Sunni splinter groups operate outside central Taliban control, and the Taliban were likely to distance themselves from the attack.
