ISLAMABAD, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- At least one man was killed and 12 others were injured in a blast that took place in capital city Peshawar of Northwestern Pakistani province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Wednesday, reported local Urdu TV Geo.

According to the report, the incident took place at about 12:30 p.m. (local time) when a blast triggered by a remote controlled device targeted the vehicle of a local tribal elder in Hayatabad area of Peshawar.

The tribal elder, Malik Taj and 11 others got injured while a passerby lost his life in the blast. Ten cars were also destroyed in the incident.

The injured have been shifted to the state-owned Lady Reading Hospital.

No group claimed responsibility for the blast.

This area has also been targeted by militants recently when several NATO oil tankers were torched by some unidentified gunmen. Last week, a string of minor explosions in various commercial areas of Peshawar left dozens of people injured and created panic among the residents.
