PESHAWAR, Pakistan -- At least seven police officers have been killed in a suicide bombing in Pakistan's restive northwest.
The attack, on March 14, happened in the village of Sarband, a suburb of Peshawar, when the bomber approached a van carrying police and detonated his explosives.
Senior police official Najeeb-ur-Rahman said the suicide bomber had approached the police vehicle on foot. Reports said more than two dozen people were wounded.
The attack comes despite a monthlong cease-fire declared by the Pakistani Taliban on March 1 as a goodwill gesture ahead of peace talks with Pakistani government. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
