Peshawar, Apr.7 (ANI): A four-member team from the US has arrived in Peshawar to probe Monday's terror strike on the American consulate.

The team visited the crime scene to collect ground evidence. The rubble from the adjacent buildings, damaged in the attack, has still not been cleared, The Daily Times reports.

Meanwhile, North West Frontier Province (NWFP) Police chief Malik Naveed has rejected reports of there being any security failure.

"It was a great success that the attackers were not allowed to reach their target," Naveed said.

The militants had first exploded a car bomb, then opened gun fire and hurled grenades and tried to enter the consulate, but were prevented.

Two Pakistani security officials were killed and many others were njured, but no American was killed or injured. (ANI)
