Suicide bombers attack police station in Pak; 1 cop wounded

Pakistani police say five suicide bombers attacked a police station in the country's northwest, wounding one police officer.

Nisar Tanoli says three of the bombers detonated their explosive vests while the police shot dead the other two attackers.

Tanoli says a police officer was wounded during Thursday's attack in Bannu city. Tanoli is the police chief in Bannu.

Pakistani Taliban spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan has claimed responsibility for the attack.

He says it was in retaliation for the killings of eight militants whose bullet-riddled bodies were found abandoned in the neighboring North Waziristan tribal area.
