PESHAWAR (AFP) — A bomb attached to a bicycle exploded in a troubled northwestern Pakistani town on Monday, killing a boy and wounding 10 police and a passer-by, police said.
The remotely detonated bomb apparently targeted a police van which was on its way to take prisoners to court in the garrison town of Kohat, police spokesman Fazal Naeem told AFP.
"The blast killed a young boy and injured 10 police, including a female constable. A civilian was also wounded," Naeem said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Police said investigations were under way. Pakistani Taliban militants operating in tribal areas that adjoin Kohat have carried out several attacks against government and military targets.
Separately, missiles fired on Monday from Afghanistan killed six suspected militants in South Waziristan tribal district bordering Afghanistan, officials said.
