A suicide bomber blew himself up at a government office in the northwestern city of Peshawar in Pakistan on Tuesday, injuring at least 10 people.

The suicide attacker detonated the explosive vest at the crowded Excise and Taxation Office in Mardan district of Khyber Pakthunkhwa, district police officer Faisal Shahzad said.

The bomber fired two shots before the explosion, Shahzad said.

Police and security forces rushed to the site after the explosion and cordoned off the area.

The injured have been admitted to nearby hospitals.
