ISLAMABAD, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- At least five people were killed and one was injured in a firing incident in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, reported local media Dawn.

Earlier local media Express said that five people were killed and one got wounded when unknown gunmen opened fire at their vehicle in Peshawar, capital city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province.

But police in Peshawar denied the firing incident and said that the firing incident actually took place in the neighboring tribal area of Khyber Agency bordering Afghanistan on Saturday afternoon.

When the bodies of the victims were shifted back to the Regi area of Peshawar, where they lived, the family members staged a protest, said a police officer in charge of the Regi area.

Police are investigating into the case, he said.
