U.S. Consulate Car Bombed in Pakistan

A car strapped with explosives rammed into a U.S. consular vehicle in Peshawar, Pakistan, on Monday morning, injuring two Pakistanis and two Americans. There were reports, however, that the two Americans had died. The attack happened in the northwestern city of Peshawar, a key post that links the tribal regions of Afghanistan to Pakistan’s border. The blast left a large crater in the road, and police said there were 200 pounds of explosives in the car. The Taliban is suspected to have perpetrated the suicide assault.
