Pakistan Suicide Bomb Attack Kills 7

Pakistan police says a suicide car-bomber attack on a police station killed seven people, including a child, and wounded 26 in northwest Pakistan Sunday.

Authorities say at least 6 police were among the wounded. Police says about 200 kilograms of explosives were used in the attack in the Kohat region. It was the second attack in the region in 2 days.

Two suicide bombers blew up their explosives at a camp for refugees Saturday, killing at least 41 people and wounding more than 60 others.

Police says the bombers struck minutes apart at the ” Kacha Pukka” camp for displaced people as residents lined up to register for aid.

The Associated Press says the bombers were men disguised in burqas (the full body covering worn by conservative Muslim women).

A retired Pakistani military official told VOA he believes the Taliban is accountable for the attack. Northwest Pakistan has suffered a major internal displacement of people as a consequence of Taliban violence and a series of military operations targeting Islamist militants near the Afghan border.
