A car packed with explosives has exploded near a crowded market in Pakistan's northwest city of Peshawar.
More than 40 people were killed and hospitals in Peshawar were overwhelmed with more than 100 injured people.
The blast comes as the Pakistan army plans a major offensive against al-Qaeda and Taliban strongholds in South Waziristan and a day after the Indian embassy in Afghanistan came under attack.
