PESHAWAR: A suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden vehicle into a police station in the southern city of Lakki Marwat, 162 km of the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Monday morning, killing 19 people, among them nine policemen, a senior police official said.

The 19 people including children and nine policemen have been killed and thirty nine others sustained serious injuries as a result of suicide bomb attack at a police station in Laki Marwat city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa here on Monday (06-09-10). A suicide bomber rammed his car into a police station in Laki Marwat on Monday killing at least 19 people, police said. Nearly 100 people were killed last week in suicide bombings on processions of minority Shi’ite Muslims in Lahore and Quetta.
“It goes to show that the terrorists have no creed except bloodshed and chaos, and are desperately carrying out their agenda regardless of the precarious conditions,” Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani told a meeting of provincial officials.
“I want to stress today that we shall never let their nefarious designs succeed and will eliminate them.”
The latest attack which took place in the town of Lakki Marwat. The bomber struck a school van before hitting the rear wall of the police station. “Nineteen people have been killed. There are nine policemen and two children among the dead,” the Information Minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, Mian Iftikhar Hussain, told Reuters. Hussain said 34 people, including 20 policemen, were wounded. Militants have frequently carried out attacks in Lakki Marwat. Earlier this year, a suicide bomber blew himself up in an SUV at a volleyball game, killing nearly 100 people in a village near the town in one of the deadliest attacks in the country. The TTP claimed responsibility for last week’s attacks in Lahore and Quetta.
Government was severely criticised for its slow response to the floods and could face riots or unrest of it does not ease growing anger, analysts say. It must also find ways to prevent an economic meltdown.
“We will have to re-prioritize our economic goals and drastically cut-down expenditures,” said Gilani.
