By Farzana Shah-Asian Tribune correspondent in Pakistan

Peshawar, 17 May, ( A car bomb explosion in Peshawar killed 11 people, including women and children, near an ice cream shop and Internet cafe Saturday.

The explosive laden car exploded in the densely populated Kashkal area of Peshawar—the capital of North West Frontier Province.

Those who killed include two women, five men and four minors aged eight to 17 years old.

Police had earlier confirmed that nine people died.

Earlier nine dead bodies were received at the main government hospital in Peshawar while two critically injured people expired later.

About 17 cars were damaged in the blast and five of them caught fire. The car in which the apparently timed device was planted blew to pieces and only a portion of its engine remained intact.
