A British man was among dozens of people wounded in a suicide bombing in the Pakistani city of Peshawar on Tuesday that killed 11 people, the Foreign Office in London said.

"We can confirm that one British national has been injured and we have offered consular assistance... He is in hospital," a spokesman said.

"The UK condemns unreservedly all such acts of indiscriminate terrorism," the spokesman added.

A huge suicide truck bomb targeted the luxury Pearl Continental hotel in the city, the capital of a northwest province plagued by Taliban violence.

Two foreigners were among the dead, provincial information minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain told AFP, but would not reveal the nationalities.
