(PESHAWAR, Pakistan) -- A two-vehicle convoy of the U.S. consulate in Peshawar, Pakistan was attacked Friday morning as the American officials were heading to work, according to U.S. embassy spokesman Alberto Rodriguez.
All of the officials survived the blast and are said to be safe. One passerby, however, was killed when the vehicles were hit.
The explosion damaged one of the two consulate vehicles and destroyed the wall of a nearby house.
The cause of the blast stemmed from a bomb in a Suzuki van packed with about 120 pounds of explosives. The U.S. embassy said it's investigating whether a motorcycle was also part of the attack.
It is not yet known who is responsible for the incident.
