Dera Ismail Khan blast in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa District

At least seven people, including four policemen, were killed and 24 injured in twin terrorist attacks, including a suicide bombing in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday morning, police and local media reported.

The Pakistani Taliban claimed the attack but did not acknowledge that the bomber was a woman.

It was not immediately clear whether the explosion was caused by a suicide bomber or a bomb planted on a motorcycle.

Two policemen were martyred on Sunday when armed terrorists assailed a police check-post in Kotla Syedan, a town and union council of Dera Ismail Khan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, as per initial reports.

According to India Today, three people were killed and seven others injured in the attacks, while National Herald says the death toll stands at seven people, including four policemen, with 40 others injured.
