Twin Blasts Kill Police Officer in Pakistan

A twin bombing killed a Pakistani police officer and wounded nine people in the northwestern city of Peshawar on Wednesday, police said. A roadside explosion first hit on the outskirts of the city and the second bomb went off about half an hour later, after police and local TV crews arrived at the scene, police official Sher Khan said. Some members of the media crews were among the wounded, AP reported Khan as saying. No one immediately claimed the attack. One of the most horrific Taliban attacks struck an army-run school in Peshawar in late 2014, killing over 150, mostly schoolchildren. Pakistan has since taken strict measures to curb militancy and stepped up army operations in the lawless tribal areas along the Afghan border. Another measure included the lifting of a ban on the death penalty and setting up military courts for terrorism trials. Police have also stepped up crackdowns on militants hiding in urban areas.
