Text size Aa Aa

Dozens of militants attacked a power station in Pakistan on Tuesday killing seven people.

They destroyed the largest plant in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province with rocket-propelled grenades and mortars.

Half the electricity supply to the city of Peshawar was cut off.

Nobody has yet claimed responsibility for the attack though it comes shortly after Pakistan’s Taliban, threatened to escalate violence ahead of next month’s general election.
