Extremist violence yet on the decline

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, which comes after months of relative calm in Pakistan, and in particular in Peshawar, once ravaged by daily attacks, but where the security had greatly improved.

Extremist violence has in fact declined markedly in Pakistan after several military operations in the tribal areas bordering Afghanistan. But some groups are still capable of carrying out attacks.

The Pakistani Taliban have regrouped in recent months, raising fears that they may regain their former potential for nuisance after several attacks on Pakistani security forces along the border with Afghanistan.
