Several Killed In Pakistan Attacks

Volunteers search a badly damaged vehicle after a suicide bomb attack in Peshawar that killed three people on May 24.
Police in northwest Pakistan say two militant attacks have left nine people dead.

Police say suspected militants attacked a police convoy on may 24 in Mattani, killing six policemen and wounding seven others.

In another attack on the same day, a suicide bomber walked up to a vehicle owned by an Afghan religious leader in Peshawar and set off explosives he was carrying, killing three people.

The leader, Haji Hayatullah, was not harmed in the attack because he was in a nearby mosque attending Friday prayers.

Hayatullah's driver and guard were killed as was a passerby, police said.

Two other civilians were wounded. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
