Funerals for Victims of Pakistan Blast
Last rites are performed in Pakistan's city of Peshawar. It's for those who died following a car bomb blast.
Funeral prayers for three members of the same family, a father and two sons, are held in a ground close to the blast site.
Yesterday's bomb was the latest urban attack since the army launched a major assault on rural Taliban strongholds two weeks ago. It was the deadliest since 2007.
This is the same city that once served as the headquarters of the Pakistan- and U.S.- backed war against the Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan.
Although nobody claimed responsibility, suspicion immediately fell on Pakistani Taliban militants, who are the target of an army offensive.
Just hours after the blast, the visiting U.S. Secretary of State told a news conference that Washington fully supported Pakistan's battle.
