A suicide bombing on Thursday killed five people near a security checkpoint in this Peshawar that has borne the brunt of Pakistan’s rising Islamist insurgency, police and government officials said.

It was the latest in a deadly string of attacks in Peshawar, a northwestern city near the Afghan border and a rugged tribal region where the military has been battling the Pakistani Taliban. Authorities said they were not sure of the target of Thursday’s blast, which killed a police officer and civilians, but many recent attacks have targeted security forces in apparent retaliation for the military operation.
