PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Police say a roadside bomb has killed three members of a Pakistani bomb disposal team who were on their way to defuse another bomb elsewhere in the city of Peshawar.

Police officer Shahid Khan says the attack took place early Monday in the Shaikh Mohammadi suburb. He says the three-member team was on its way to defuse a bomb that was uncovered in the Suleman Khel district.

The three victims were identified as bomb disposal expert Abdul Haq and his two aides. Khan says that after the incident, police found another bomb nearby, which was later defused.

The suburbs of Peshawar, which lies close to tribal regions, have seen scores of bomb attacks in recent years.
