Taliban suicide bombers attack police station in Pakistan

PanARMENIAN.Net - Four Taliban suicide bombers attacked a police station in northwest Pakistan on Monday, killing at least eight police and local residents, security officials said, according to Reuters.

The Pakistan Taliban took responsibility for the attack near Bannu in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, close to the border with Afghanistan, a hotbed of insurgency where attacks on security forces are common.

"Three suicide bombers blew themselves up, while one was shot by police before he could blow himself up," an intelligence source said.

A spokesman for the militant group said the bombing was revenge for the killing of the nephew of former leader Baitullah Mehsud last month. Baitullah died in a U.S. drone strike in 2009.
