Police say a suicide car bombing apparently targeting a senior police officer in northwest Pakistan has killed at least four people and wounded 13. The officer escaped unhurt.
Faisal Shahzad, a senior police official, said the target of the September 23 attack appeared to be Brigadier Khalid Javed, the second-most senior officer in the Frontier Constabulary force.
A hospital spokesman in Peshawar also confirmed the death toll, saying the hospital received three bodies.
Peshawar is the gateway to the seven semi-autonomous tribal regions where the military has been battling Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked militants.
The tribal areas have for years been a hideout for Islamist militants of all stripes, including Al-Qaeda and the homegrown Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan as well as foreign fighters such as Uzbeks and Uyghurs.
