Pakistan Bus Bombing Kills Eight

An explosion near a bus in Pakistan killed at least eight people Saturday. The bus was traveling through a bus market in a suburb of Peshawar when a bomb exploded. An additional seven passengers, including women and children, were also reported injured. Though it’s not clear who is behind the bombing, Peshawar has been routinely targeted by the Pakistan Taliban. A separate bomb blast in the northwestern Swat Valley killed anti-Taliban leader Mukarram Shah, a leader in the anti-Taliban Awami National Party. The bomb was planted near Shah’s car.
