Huge explosion rocks Pakistan's Peshawar city

A huge explosion has rocked Pakistan's main northwest city of Peshawar.
An Associated Press reporter saw a huge white plume of smoke rising from a downtown area. There was no immediate word of casualties in the blast Wednesday.
The explosion coincides with a trip to Pakistan by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was in the capital Islamabad some three hours drive away.
Islamist militants have struck numerous times in Pakistan this month, killing more than 200 people in apparent retaliation for an army offensive in one of their northwest strongholds along the Afghan border.
