PESHAWAR: A 6-year-old Pakistani schoolboy was killed and five boys and two other people wounded in an explosion on Monday outside a school in the northwestern city of Peshawar, doctors said.

"One schoolboy was killed. Seven people are wounded, five of them are children," Khizer Hayat, a doctor in a government-run hospital said. "All of the injured are in stable condition."

The blast took place outside Police Public School on Jamrud road, near Peshawar.

Two vehicles were destroyed in the explosion. Initial reports suggest that 2 kgs of explosives were used in the attack.


"There was an explosion outside the Police Public School at closing time. Two people were wounded," senior police official Sher Akbar Khan told AFP. "

The incident comes after three suicide attacks in 24 hours killed 49 people in the nearby northwestern city of Kohat. 7 people were killed Sunday as a bomber tried to target a police station, while on Saturday two suicide bombers dressed in burqas struck a crowd of displaced people collecting aid handouts, killing 42.


Abdul Aleem | 14 years ago | Reply I have got just one thing to say and that is we should pray for peace, solidarity, love, harmony and unity in our country. Our problem is not the terrorism but non-existence of honesty, passion and patriotism.. If we start to strive for all the aforementioned qualities, I can assure you that terrorists will not be able to find a place to hide let alone going berserk the way they are doing right now..... I might sound a bit cliched, conservative, Utopian and Allah knows what not...!!!! But if I am wrong then we must remember that these are thoughts that were expressed by Allama Iqbal and Quaid.....I am just trying to replicate what has already been said 60-90 years ago ..... God Save Pakistan....We love our Pakistan....!!!!!
