Pakistani bombA car bomb detonated at a bazaar in Peshawar, Pakistan, Sunday killed at least 40 people and injured about 100 others, officials said.

So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Pakistani Taliban, Tehrik-i-Taliban, has denied any involvement, CNN reported.

"We are targeting the government machinery and the law enforcement agencies but not general public," said Tehrik-i-Taliban spokesman Shaidullah Shaid.

A car carrying 440 pounds of explosives drove into the Qissa Khawani bazaar and exploded Sunday, CNN reported.

The blast destroyed at least 10 shops, several vehicles and left a huge crater in the ground, Shafqat Malik, chief of the bomb disposal unit, told CNN.
