Pakistan security forces targeted a suspected militant hideout in the northwestern city of Peshawar with a large blast on Tuesday.
It comes after security forces raided the building on Monday night acting on intelligence about planned attacks, triggering a 15- hour shootout in which a police officer and at least five suspect militants were killed, according to local authorities.
The chief minister of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province said the suspects were asked to surrender but instead, they opened fire on the security forces.
