Police say a suicide bomber has killed four women in northwest Pakistan in an attempted attack on mourners at a funeral.
Senior police official Najeeb Ur Rehman said the blast hit a house in Peshawar, close to where the mourners were holding funeral prayers.
Police said the mourners spotted three would-be suicide bombers coming toward them but managed to scare them off.
Two fled the scene, but the third blew himself up at the entrance of a home unconnected to the mourners.
Six people were also injured in the attack.
At least eight people were killed in a suicide attack in the northwestern city of Peshawar last week.
