At least four U.S. consulate workers are seriously wounded and five other people are dead after a suicide bomber brazenly rammed a vehicle into a U.S. government car in Peshawar, Pakistan. Two of the wounded consulate workers are American, and the other two are Pakistani. No one has taken responsibility for Monday's attack, which took place near the Afghan border in an area of the city that is home to several foreign organizations, including the United Nations. The names of the injured and dead have not been released.
