Police said a car bomb has detonated in a commercial district in Pakistan's main northwestern city, killing four people and wounding dozens of others. It was the second suicide car bombing to hit the restive region on Saturday. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the first attack. Police official Shaukat Khan said an attacker detonated the second bomb outside a bank affiliated with the army in Peshawar, the capital of North West Frontier Province. He said four have been killed and dozens hurt. Another suicide blast hit the province's Bannu district earlier Saturday, killing at least six people and wounding nearly 70 others.
