Pakistan attack: Deadly bombing in Peshawar

A powerful blast has killed at least 14 people in the north-western city of Peshawar in Pakistan, officials say.

The bomb attack was aimed at a convoy of paramilitary forces, they said. At least 25 people were wounded, and vehicles and shops damaged.

Peshawar is on the edge of Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal region - the main militant haven from which attacks are often launched.

It has been hit by dozens of bombings and killings over recent years.
