Eighteen people have been killed and 44 others injured in the latest terror attack in Peshawar in North West Pakistan. Three policemen and a lawyer are also among the dead.
The blast, a suicide attack, targeted the court on Khyber Road. The bomber blew himself up when he was being frisked at the gate of the judicial complex. The blast on Thursday morning was so powerful that several cars parked nearby were destroyed. Security forces immediately cordoned off the area and neighbouring schools were closed down.
