Car bomb extends a deadly week in Pakistan

Peshawar again targeted; 40 die in historic bazaar

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — A powerful car bomb ripped through a busy marketplace in Peshawar, the regional capital of northwestern Pakistan, early Sunday, killing 40 people in the third major attack in and around the city in the past week.

The explosion occurred in the historic Qissa Khwani bazaar in the old quarter of the city, roughly 2 miles from the site of a double suicide bombing of a Christian church a week earlier that killed dozens of people.
