Three suicide bombers, including a woman, detonated two blasts outside a police station in the north-western Pakistani city of Peshawar yesterday, killing 13 people. Suspicion fell on the Taliban, who have been blamed for two weeks of attacks, killing more than 150 people.

Yesterday's bombing targeted a heavily fortified police station next to a mosque in the main city of Pakistan's North West Frontier Province. A motorcycle smashed into a car filled with explosives outside the station, initiating the first blast. The woman bomber on the motorcycle ran towards a police housing complex, but was shot by police as she was detonating the explosives she was wearing.
