Peshawar

Three missiles have struck Peshawar, Pakistan. Anti-Musharraf forces are suspected:

A guerrilla ambush killed three Pakistani soldiers Tuesday and raised the death toll for the security forces to 32 after more than a week of fighting near the Afghan border.

Thousands of Pakistanis have marched to protest the offensive ordered by President Pervez Musharraf and his cooperation with the U.S.-led war on terrorism. Violence has been growing throughout the region as Pakistani forces seek to root out suspected foreign militants and tribesmen accused of sheltering them.

Tuesday night, three missiles hit Peshawar, creating huge, simultaneous explosions in parts of the Northwest Frontier Province's capital and sparking panic among the city's residents.

Police said one missile landed in the parking lot of their headquarters, another struck near the office of the World Health Organization and the third fell in a residential area.
