A Frontier Constabulary (FC) official died and eight others, including two civilians, were hurt as a blast occurred close to Prime Hospital Complex in Pakistan's Peshawar city on Monday.

Warsak Superintendent of Police (SP) Mohammad Arshad Khan told Dawn News that a vehicle of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa FC’s Mohmand Rifles regiment was targeted in the attack at around 10:30am. 

The vehicle was headed towards Peshawar from Machni when the blast occurred, he said.

SP Khan said that one FC official was killed as a result while six FC officials and two civilians were also injured.

Stating that there was “no prior threat”, he said the blast was carried out using an improvised explosive device (IED).

The SP said further probe into the incident is currently going on.
