Peshawar, Aug 24 (ANI): The Peshawar Police has registered a case against an outlawed outfit of the Khyber Agency, Lashkar-e-Islam, for killing three persons and injuring 15 in Momin Town in a suicide bomb attack.

Four persons, including the suicide bomber, were killed in Peshawar. It was triggered by an apparent feud between rival militant groups, police said.

The attacker blew himself up outside the home of a brother of Mubeen Afridi, a spokesman for Taliban-linked extremist group Ansar-ul-Islam, who was killed in a remote-controlled blast on Saturday night.

According to police sources, a case has been registered in the Momin Town suicide blast against outlawed organization Lashkar-e-Islam.

Last year, the government launched a major operation against militant groups in Khyber after the rebels threatened to take over Peshawar, and the offensive sent their leaders running into the mountains bordering Afghanistan. (ANI)
