Bomb kills man driving donkey cart in Pakistan

Police say a roadside bomb has struck a donkey cart in northwestern Pakistan, killing the driver.

Police official Ghaffar Khan says Wednesday's attack occurred near the city of Peshawar.

Police also say a roadside bomb struck a police patrol elsewhere in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Wednesday, wounding six officers. Police official Haleem Khan said the officers injured by the blast in Hangu district were in stable condition.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Taliban militants have regularly carried out attacks in northwest Pakistan in recent years.
