Police say a car bomb has exploded in a tunnel in northwest Pakistan, killing five people.
Police official Mujahid Khan says the explosion occurred late Friday in the Kohat tunnel, a busy thoroughfare that connects the main northwest city of Peshawar to southern Khyber Paktunkhwa, Punjab and Sind provinces. Officials said 19 people were wounded.
Northwest Pakistan has witnessed numerous bombings over the past several years.
Most are believed linked to al-Qaida and Taliban-led militant groups. The 1-mile (2-kilometer) long tunnel has been the scene of past fighting between Pakistani security forces and the Taliban.
