PESHAWAR  - A suicide attack targeting police in DI Khan late Sunday wounded five officers and badly damaged a vehicle, officials said.

The bomber struck a police patrol in Dera Ismail Khan town in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which borders Afghanistan.

“The suicide bomber was on foot. He blew himself up when the police vehicle was patrolling in a street,” senior police official Qazi Jamil ur-Rehman told AFP.

“Five policemen were wounded, condition of one of them was critical,” he said. This was the second attack in two days in the KP province.

Militants have killed more than 4,900 people across country since government troops raided Red Mosque in Islamabad in July 2007.
