PESHAWAR, PAKISTAN — Officials say a roadside bomb went off near two U.S. consulate vehicles in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar. A Pakistani passer-by was killed, and some Americans were slightly wounded.
U.S. Embassy spokesman Alberto Rodriguez says the two vehicles were traveling on University Road in Peshawar on Friday morning when the attack occurred. One of the vehicles was damaged.
Senior police official Shafi Ullah says the dead passer-by was a Pakistani.
No groups claimed responsibility. In the wake of the May 2 U.S. raid that killed al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, militant groups such as the Pakistani Taliban have vowed revenge attacks including those targeting Americans in Pakistan.
