Islamabad: Four policemen, including an
officer, were injured when a police van was targeted with a
roadside bomb on the outskirts of Pakistan`s northwest
Peshawar city on Tuesday, officials said.
The bomb planted by the side of Kohat Road was triggered
as the van was passing the area this evening, officials said.
An inspector and three policemen were injured by the
powerful blast, which damaged several other vehicles.
The injured were taken to the Lady Reading Hospital.
Footage on television showed that the police van was
reduced to a mangled heap of metal.
