      Gunmen Attack School Van in Pakistan

      Gunmen attacked a school van in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, killing three children, a teacher and the driver, police said. The strike took place in Matani on the outskirts of the main northwestern city of Peshawar.

      The district is the scene of a vicious conflict between government-backed tribal armies and militants with links to al-Qaeda and the Taliban based in the nearby Afghan border regions.
