Suicide Attack Kills 1 Police Officer In Pakistan

DERA ISLAMIL KHAN, Pakistan -- A suicide attack at a police station in northwestern Pakistan has killed an officer and wounded two civilians.

Police official Ghulam Farid said the bomber Saturday rammed an explosive laden vehicle into the wall of the station in Tank district.

He says at least two more people are believed to be buried in the rubble.

Tank is close to the Afghan border region of South Waziristan, a Taliban stronghold where the Pakistan army began a major offensive in mid-October.
