Over a dozen militants, some disguised in burqas, opened fire on the house of an anti-Taliban mayor in north-western Pakistan.
Security guards repelled the attack on the home of Mohammad Fahim Khan, killing three assailants.
The others managed to escape. Mr Khan has organised a militia to fight the Taliban in his town of Bazid Khel, 10 miles south of the city of Peshawar.
