At least two policemen were injured when a suicide bomber rammed his vehicle into a police station in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa's Bannu district.

According to police officials, the attack took place in the early hours of Tuesday, injuring two officials on duty at the gate. "The damage to the police station is extensive," a police official told The Express Tribune. "It apparently seems like a vehicle borne suicide attack" he added.

9 injured in blast targeting FC vehicle in Peshawar

A portion of the police station collapsed due to the explosion, however, the impact of the blast seemed to have affected the area outside the police station. This is the second suicide attack on Mandan police station.

Last week, at least nine people were injured in a roadside blast targeting a Frontier Corps (FC) vehicle in Peshawar. The convoy was passing by Charsadda Road in the jurisdiction of Dauadzai police station when it came under attack. “About six of the injured are civilians while three of them are security personnel,” Rescue 1122 spokesperson Bilal Faizi said.
