Peshawar blast: Assistant political agent succumbs to injuries
[Dawn] Assistant Political Agent Landi Kotal Khalid Mumtaz Kundi died on Tuesday from injured sustained when jacket wallahs struck his office a day earlier during a meeting to discuss looming general elections, officials said.

Kundi, a deputy of Khyber Agency Political Agent Mutahir Zeb, died in a military hospital in Beautiful Downtown Peshawar of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly known as the North-West Frontier Province), administrative and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is situated near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass, convenient to the Pak-Afghan border. Peshawar has evolved into one of Pakistan's most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities, which means lots of gunfire.

"They operated on him for several hours overnight but several pieces of shrapnel had entered his body and he died," a security official told AFP.

Officials in the Khyber administration confirmed his death.

Six people have now died as a result of the attack, in which two suicide bombers stormed the Khyber administration's compound in Peshawar as Zeb chaired a meeting on arrangements for the elections.
