A bomb exploded in a crowded market in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar, killing at least seven people and wounding more than 40, police said. The explosion occurred Friday in the city's downtown district about 10 minutes before iftar, the time for breaking the daily fast during the holy Islamic month of Ramadan, police officer Zafar Khan said. Six people in the street were killed and another man, who was among several critically wounded, died later at a hospital, Khan said. At least 41 others were wounded, several seriously.
