LEIGH SALES, PRESENTER: A suicide bombing in the north-west Pakistani city of Peshawar has killed
at least 49 people and injured more than 100. The bomb, which was in a mini bus, went off next to a
large commuter bus in a crowded market. The powerful explosion severely damaged nearby buildings.
No one has claimed yet responsibility, but Peshawar is a frequent target of Taliban and Al Qaeda
attacks. Just three days ago, a Taliban suicide attack against a United Nations office in the
capital Islamabad killed five people.
