Pakistan: Deadly bomb kills six near Peshawar

The Taliban sure are teaching those filthy bus riders a lesson.

At least six people have been killed in a bomb blast outside the north-western Pakistani city of Peshawar, police say.

The bomb was planted at a bus stop near a market in the town of Matani, about 20km (12 miles) south of Peshawar, police commanders told news agencies.

Matani is close to Pakistan's lawless tribal regions and the Afghan border.

It is not clear who carried out the attack but Pakistan has been battling Islamist militants and its own version of the Taliban.

At least 10 people were wounded in the attack in Matani.
