Another suicide bombing in Peshawar

10:32 pm on 19 November 2009

A suicide bomber has killed at least 16 people outside a court building in the Pakistani city of Peshawar.

The blast on the busy Khyber Road came during rush hour.

Medical personnel say at least another 26 people were wounded.

The city, near the Afghan border, has been targeted several times since the army began an offensive against the Taliban in South Waziristan last month and militants stepped up retaliatory attacks.
