9 killed, 40 injured in terror strike and suicide blast in Pakistan

AIR PIC
In Pakistan, at least nine persons, including six policemen, were killed and around 40 others injured in a terror strike on a checkpost and a subsequent suicide blast in northwest part of the country today.

District Police Chief Saleem Riaz told, four unidentified armed men riding two motor-bikes opened fire on two policemen and killed them. The official said when the bodies of the slain policemen were brought to the district hospital, a burqa-clad suicide bomber, already sitting there, targeted the people who gathered around the ambulance. Police said seven people, including four policemen, were killed in the suicide blast. 

Both the attacks took place in Dera Ismail Khan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a day after the first-ever successful election was held in the newly merged tribal areas of the province. The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack.
