At least 30 soldiers have been killed in an explosion at an army camp in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast, which shattered the windows of the police vehicle and damaged a nearby police post.
Pakistani security forces have also inflamed anger among pro-Taliban tribesmen in the area bordering Afghanistan after carrying out an air strike on a religious school at the end of October that killed about 80 suspected fighters.
Days later, a suicide attacker detonated a bomb among army recruits on a training ground in a nearby northwestern town, killing 42 of them.
It was the bloodiest-ever strike on Pakistani security forces.
A blast in a passenger van in the eastern city of Lahore later on Friday killed one person and wounded seven, police said.
Four of the wounded were in a serious condition.
There have been more than half a dozen bombs in Peshawar in recent weeks, including one that killed six people and wounded more than 30 in a crowded market on October 20.
