Car bomb hits U.S. vehicle in Pakistan, kills 2

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Police say a car filled with explosives rammed into a U.S. government vehicle in northwest Pakistan, killing two people and wounding five others.

Police officer Pervez Khan says the vehicle was attacked in the northwest city of Peshawar on Monday after it left the U.S. Consulate.

Khan said some of the wounded were foreigners. The identities of those killed were unclear.

The attack occurred in an area of Peshawar hosting several foreign organizations, including the United Nations.

Local TV footage showed an SUV at the site that was completely destroyed and burned.

U.S. officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
