Four young brothers were killed Wednesday when Taliban militants fired a rocket into a residential area of Peshawar, police said. "The victims were all brothers, the eldest being 17 years old and the youngest was four," Peshawar city police chief Liaquat Ali said. He blamed the Taliban for the early morning strike. "Taliban militants are responsible for this inhuman act. They targeted a residential area. The rocket hit a house and four children from the same family were killed and nine others wounded," he told AFP. Witnesses said the two-storey house was destroyed in the attack. "The attack will not deter us from our resolve to rid the city of militants," Ali said.
