A senior Pakistani police official and two others are dead following a suicide car bomb attack in Peshawar, Pakistan.

The deputy superintendent of police for southern Peshawar, his driver and a passer-by were killed. Eight other people were wounded.

No one has claimed responsibility, but the area has been repeatedly attacked by the Pakistani Taliban.

The city is next to a tribal region used by militants as their main base of operations.
