An explosion ripped through a bus carrying government officials in northern Pakistan on Wednesday and early reports say there are casualties. 

The bus was bringing about 40 employees from Mardan when a blast went off near Sunehri Masjid in  Peshawar, a busy area of the northwestern city that has been plagued by attacks by the Pakistani Taliban .

A suicide bomber killed 13 people on March 8 after blowing himself up outside a court in  Charsadda, in Khyber

-Pakhtunkhwa province, about 30km from Peshawar.

Pakistan has fought homegrown fighters since 2004, when the Taliban, displaced by the 2001 US-led invasion of Afghanistan, began a campaign in border tribal areas.
