An explosion hit a school bus in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar on Monday. Police say two children were wounded and the bus driver was killed.

Local media showed at least one person being detained at the scene.

Pakistan's government is facing a growing threat from what officials and analysts call a growing network of militant groups.

It's a murky mix that includes al Qaeda, Pakistani Taliban militants and other groups.

Some are anti-Western while others are driven mostly by sectarian hatred.

Pakistani authorities are on alert for sectarian violence during Moharram, the holiest month for Shi'ite Muslims, which is currently underway.

Sunni militant groups often attack Shi'ite gatherings during this period.
