A car bomb has exploded in a market in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar, killing at least six people and injuring 11.

Local police said the device, placed in a pick-up truck, exploded near a mosque in Matni, a southern suburb of Peshawar.

No one immediately claimed the responsibility for the attack, but Taliban militants have been carrying out similar bombings and suicide attacks in Peshawar.

The target of the attack was unclear, as those killed were all civilians.
