Bomb kills 4 outside shop in NW Pakistan

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — A homemade bomb exploded Thursday outside a store in northwestern Pakistan where locals watch movies, killing four people, including a child.
The attack, in which 21 people were wounded, occurred on the outskirts of Peshawar, a city near the Afghan border that experienced a wave of bombings at the end of last year but has been fairly quiet in recent months.
Two men were killed instantly, while two others, including a child, succumbed to their injuries after arriving at a local hospital, said medical official Jamal Shah.
The bomb appeared to contain some 5 kilograms of explosives, according to police explosives expert Shafqat Malik.
