Officials say two blasts targeting police patrol also left 10 others wounded.

Two bomb blasts targeting a police patrol on Wednesday killed at least one policeman and wounded 10 others in Peshawar, officials said.

The first bomb planted on a roadside exploded when a police petrol vehicle passed in Aslam Dheri, a neighborhood in the city’s southern outskirts. The second blast came some 20 minutes later, as police, rescuers and others were trying to help the casualties.

“A policeman embraced martyrdom and three others were wounded in two bomb blasts,” said senior police official Sajjad Khan.

Hospital official Zulfiqar Ali Babakhel said that one dead and 10 wounded—three policemen and seven civilians—were brought to hospital.

The wounded included a driver of private Aaj television who had come to the site after the first blast, he added. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
