PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Four bombs exploded in quick succession Monday close to the US Consulate in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar, police and eyewitnesses said.

Gunfire was also heard close to the heavily guarded and fortified building in Peshawar, according to local police officer Aziz Khan.Rescue workers carried at least one wounded man away on a stretcher, his clothing soaked with blood.



The US Embassy in Islamabad said it could not comment, but local TV footage showed soldiers taking up defensive positions on the road outside the consulate. One soldier hit the ground in the middle of the road and began firing as a large explosion sent up a plume of gray smoke nearby.
