Police said two people were killed after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives outside a press club in Pakistan's northwest city of Peshawar on Tuesday morning. Police official Shafi Ullah said the dead from included a policeman and another person who was at the press club's gate when the explosion occurred. Four other people were injured. Peshawar has been a frequent target for bomb blasts in Pakistan over the past few months. The attacks have been part of a surge in violence in the country attributed to militants retaliating for the army's offensive against the Taliban in the South Waziristan tribal region. The Peshawar Press Club is a well-known landmark in the city and many journalists congregate there.
