Suicide attack kills police officer,two children and one other in NWFP

Saturday, 23 Jan, 2010||Safar 07, 1431.

PESHAWAR: A suicide car bomb attack by the Islamists killed at least four people and injured 11 others in a town in troubled northwest Pakistan on Saturday, police said.

The attack took place close to a police station in Gomal, 25 kilometres south of the city of Tank, neighbouring the Taliban stronghold of South Waziristan where Pakistani troops are battling militants.

“The bomber struck … outside the police station, killing one policeman and three passers-by including two children,” district police chief Ejaz Abid told AFP.

He said 11 people including five policemen, three passers-by and three prisoners in the police lock-up were injured.

“This was a car bomb attack, which is a reaction to the ongoing operation in South Waziristan region,” Abid added.

Pakistan’s military has been focusing its most ambitious military offensive yet against homegrown Taliban militants in the tribal region, deploying about 30,000 troops on October 17.

Another senior police official Ghazanfar Hussain also confirmed the incident and casualties.

“I was busy in routine desk work inside the police station when a large blast rocked the entire building,” Hussain said.

He added that one of the outer walls of the police station collapsed from the impact of the blast while big cracks appeared in other rooms of the building.
