At Least Four Killed, Two Wounded, in Attack against Police in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD – One police official and three suicide bombers were killed on Wednesday in an attack against a police center in western Pakistan.

The attack occurred on Wednesday morning when three suicide bombers tried to enter a police center in the city of Loralai in the province of Balochistan, the media wing of Pakistan’s armed forces, Inter-Services Public Relations, said in a statement.

One of the attackers was shot dead by police at the entrance to the complex while the other two managed to enter the center.

“In exchange of fire one SB (suicide bomber) exploded himself and the other was killed by Security Forces,” ISPR said.

A police officer was killed in the attack while another two were wounded and have been taken to a hospital.

A police recruitment center in the same city was attacked in late January claiming the lives of 12 people and wounding another 21.

Balochistan, the largest and least populated state of Pakistan, has witnessed frequent attacks by separatist groups, armed Islamist forces and organized crime networks, making it one of the nation’s most unstable and insecure regions

In July last year, 149 people were killed in an attack in the province during a rally in the midst of the general elections campaign. It was one of the worst attacks in the history of the Asian country.

The overall number of terror attacks in Pakistan, however, has decreased significantly after the military launched an operation seeking to secure the northwestern tribal areas in June 2014, which later expanded to the rest of the country.
