Local media reports also indicate that a FC major is also among those killed in the attack.

According to Peshawar Cantonment SP Imran Malik, the suicide bomber was riding a motorcycle when he targeted the FC vehicle after ramming his motorcycle into paramilitary convoy and blowing himself up.

The attack in Peshawar comes a day after the Pakistan Army announced it had launched an operation in Khyber to rout Islamic State (IS) militants who it said were operating in the volatile tribal area. The security forces cordoned off the area.

Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has accepted responsibility for attack.
