2 cops among 7 injured in Bannu blast

17 May, 2014

ISLAMABAD: At least seven people were wounded in a blast in Bannu, officials said on Friday, including two policemen.

The officers were among seven hurt in a motorcycle bomb attack targeting a police van in the northwestern town of Bannu, which has a history of violence, much of it targeting security forces.

"A bomb planted in a motorbike parked along the roadside went off as a police van passed by it, wounding seven people including two policemen and five passers-by," a local police official Aslam Khan told AFP.

It is the latest violence to hit since the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) ended a ceasefire called to help peace talks with the government. Stop-start talks to end the TTP's seven-year insurgency have been under way since February, with little clear progress made.

End.
